2 February (Fourth Sunday after Epiphany)

'But we proclaim Christ crucified....' (1 Corinthians 1:23)

O God, you are the gathering one
who calls us into community
with each other
to love and work,
to support and heal.

You are the gathering one
who calls us into community
with all people;
to bring justice and hope,
freedom and truth.

You are the gathering one
who calls us into community
with the whole creation;
to live in harmony,
to cherish and renew.

Let us worship the God
who makes us one.

Prayer for Poverty Action Sunday, from Church Action on Poverty


9 February (Fifth Sunday after Epiphany)

'Is not this the fast that I choose...' (Isaiah 58:6)

Lord God,
Instil in us a sense of your justice.
May we never take for granted the food that we have,
nor tell ourselves that hunger is not our problem.
Help us to use the voices that we have
to speak up against the many injustices
that make hunger an ever-present problem.
Amen

From Lent Food, joint publication of Christian Aid and the Scottish Episcopal Church, 2014


16 February (Sixth Sunday after Epiphany)

'Choose life, so that you and your descendants may live....' (Deuteronomy 30:19)

God, Creator,
for your glory shining forth in sky and sea,
in the changing light on the hills,
in the flight of birds,
in the plants of the field
for the gift of life in all its fullness,
we thank you.

Jesus, Redeemer,
for blessing children,
healing the sick,
raising up the lowly
suffering the brokenness of the world in your own body
that we might have fullness of life,
we thank you.

Holy Spirit, Comforter,
for breathing new hope and strength into our lives
breaking down barriers
drawing human beings together in love
resisting all that diminishes fullness of life,
we thank you.

Holy Trinity,
in all that we do and say and are,
may we always choose life,
for ourselves, and for our neighbours.
Amen.


23 February (Seventh Sunday after Epiphany)

'And you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.' (1 Corinthians 3:23)

When we are living,
we are in the Lord,
and when we’re dying,
we are in the Lord.
For in our living
and in our dying,
we belong to God,
we belong to God.
