E te whānau, let us love one another,
because love is from God.
New Testament Reading - Give Thanks to God
14Most of all, let love guide your life, for then the whole church will stay together in perfect harmony. 15Let the peace of heart that comes from Christ be always present in your hearts and lives, for this is your responsibility and privilege as members of his body. And always be thankful.
16Remember what Christ taught, and let his words enrich your lives and make you wise; teach them to each other and sing them out in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing to the Lord with thankful hearts. 17And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus, and come with him into the presence of God the Father to give him your thanks.. . . . . Colossians 3:14-17

We pray for… those in need:
those who suffer;
the lonely; the unloved;

Comfort and heal, merciful Lord,
all who are in sorrow, need, sickness, or any other trouble.
Give them a firm trust in your goodness;
help those who minister to them;
and bring us all into the joy of your salvation.
Father, hear our prayer,
