Sunday 5th July

As we and many other churches return to public worship today, here is a prayer adapted from the

Collect for a dedication festival:


Almighty God,

we praise you for the many blessings

you have given to those who worship you in church buildings:

and we pray that all who seek you in their church may find you,

and, being filled with the Holy Spirit,

may become a living temple acceptable to you;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.


All the best
