Jesus, true word of God,
you sent Irenaeus the peacemaker
to a persecuted and puzzled church;
give us his skill, we pray,
to correct those who are in error
and to comfort those who have been ill-treated.
Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)
give us today our daily bread.
Look kindly, all-seeing God,
on all who spend this night in anxiety or pain.
Be with those who will die tonight.
Look kindly on those who are without food or shelter,
on those who have no love.
Your will is that we should have life, and share it.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with us all evermore.
The divine Spirit dwells in us.
Thanks be to God.
