Readings and Prayers – 20 October 2013


There is none like the God of the upright, who rides on the heavens to help you and on the clouds in majesty. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:26, 27 (adapted)

Strong, loving and wise,
Help us to depend upon your goodness
And to place our trust in your Son. Amen
