Committed to Growth Prayers

A prayer for use throughout the Diocese as we commit ourselves to growth:

Eternal God,
in your Son Jesus Christ
you reveal your love for the world,
and by the grace of the Holy Spirit
you give us the strength to share
his mission in this Diocese:
help us to grow in proclaiming your good news,
drawing others to know you,
serving our communities,
promoting justice and peace
and sustaining the well-being
of the life of the earth;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord

Emma Rogers (Aged 7) from St Nicholas’, North Lopham, Norfolk has also written the following prayer:

Dear God,
thank you for everything that grows.
Please help our Church to grow well by
getting more boys and girls learning about
Jesus and joining the Church Communion.
