Readings and Prayers – 8 September 2013


To him who loves us and freed us from our sins with his life’s blood, who made of us a royal house to serve as the priests of his God and Father—to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:6


Servant God, grant us opportunity,
give us willingness
to serve you day by day’
that what we do
and how we bear each other’s burdens,
may be our sacrifice to you. Amen
