God of love and goodness,
you called Cuthbert
from looking after sheep
to be a shepherd of your people;
grant that as he sought those who had gone astray,
so we may seek out the indifferent and the lost,
bringing them into your fold;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
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.
