COLLECT

Almighty God whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: raise us , who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

READINGS

1 John 3:16-end, John 10:11-18.

PRAYERS

We pray for the world and for its leaders, that they may be good shepherds and servants of their people. We pray for peace and reconciliation in countries that are torn apart by war, oppression and civil unrest.

We pray for those who are lonely and feel forgotten, who are ill or suffering. We pray for those close to death and those who mourn loved ones.

We pray for ourselves, for strength when our resistance to temptation is low, when we do or say things we regret.

We pray for those who have died and we rejoice with them in the promise of a life more abundant than this world can give, where Christ calls his flock to be with him in glory.
