Jesus, we remember with sadness
the fires in which Christians
burned other Christians,
when the English hunted and killed each other;
extinguish, we pray, such fires for ever,
all over the world.
Amen.

Thanksgiving

Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)

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
