Gracious and eternal God,
you inspired Simon Peter to confess Jesus
as Messiah and Son of the living God;
keep your church firm on the rock of this faith,
that in unity and peace
we may proclaim the truth of your gospel,
to the glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
give us today our daily bread.
Holy and eternal God,
in you we live and move and have our being.
In all our cares and occupations,
guide and govern us by your Spirit,
that we may both remember and reveal your presence;
through our Saviour Jesus Christ.
