Collect

Everliving God,
your Son Jesus Christ was presented as a child in the Temple
to be the hope of your people;
grant us pure hearts and minds
that we may be transformed into his likeness
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever.
Amen.

Prayer

Our Father,
give us today our daily bread.

God of seed and growth and harvest,
creator of need, creator of satisfaction;
give us, we pray, our daily bread,
sufficient and assured for all.
Give us also, we pray, the bread of life,
and we shall have a care to feed the hungry,
and to seek for peace and justice in the world.
Help us, then, to remember and to know
that you are our life today and every day;
you are the food we need, now and for ever.
Amen.

The Blessing

May Christ the Son of God, gladden our hearts
with the good news of God’s Kingdom.
Amen.
