Prayer for today

This week’s prayer was from the Church England’s ‘Prayer for the Day’ web page last week. For a new prayer to try every day, rather than once a week, visit: https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/join-us-service-daily-prayer/todays-prayer

Almighty God,
who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ
have overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life:
grant that, as by your grace going before us
you put into our minds good desires,
so by your continual help
we may bring them to good effect;
through Jesus Christ our risen Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
