Diocesan Prayer

Gracious God

whose very being is love,

who reaches out into the whole of your creation,

who came amongst us in Christ Jesus,

and who invites us to share in your love;

grant us the grace to hear and to listen to your Word,

to receive and respond to your call upon our lives;

so that enriched and enlivened by the Holy Spirit,

we may be compassionate signs and channels

of your reconciling transforming love in the world.
