THIS WEEK’S PEW SHEET
THE PARISH PRAYER
“God our Father, you have made us members of Christ and of his church in this parish. May our worship be the offering of our hearts and live to you. Help us to reach out in welcome to newcomers and visitors, to encourage and care for each other in friendship and fellowship, and to grow in grace and in love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
A PRAYER FOR A NEW PRIEST AT ST ANDREW’S
“Bountiful God, give to this parish a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word and minister your sacraments; an encourager who will equip your people for ministry and enable us to fulfil our calling. Give to those who will choose wisdom, discernment and patience, and to us all give warm and generous hearts, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.”
