SEXT - Lunch



God of all nations,
through the lives and witness of the saints and martyrs of Asia,
your name is honoured today
from Siberia to Sri Lanka and from Turkey to Japan;
from the seed of faith sown,
let your church grow and prosper
to the glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Our Father,
save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.

Giver of the present, hope for the future:
save us from the time of trial.
When prophets warn us of doom,
of catastrophe and of suffering beyond belief,
then, God, free us from our helplessness,
and deliver us from evil.
Save us from our arrogance and folly,
for you are God who created the world;
you have redeemed us and you are our salvation.
