Trinity Sunday - 3 June

‘So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him “Abba, Father”.’

From Romans 8:12-17

Abba, Father,

thank you that you who laid the earth on its foundation

and threw the stars into the sky

gave your son to bring us back to you

and invite us to become your children.

Jesus, Lord

Your gift to us is peace

You walked the earth and walked among us

Through your death, life

Through your resurrection, hope

And the promise of your spirit.

Spirit, come

We throw open our hearts to you.

Dwell within us

And show us how to pass your peace

To a broken world.

10 June

‘The Lord will work out his plans for my life – for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.’

From Psalm 138

Loving God

You have marked out a perfect path for each of us to travel, and all we need to do is walk your way. You have a future for us, stretched out ahead, if we would but claim it. All of us at times doubts, as we cry to you and hear the cries of others. But we are your workmanship and you are always by our side. Trusting that this gift is ours, may we offer your enduring love to others on the road.

17 June

‘For we live by believing and not by seeing.’

From 2 Corinthians 5: 6-10

Jesus,

We dare to believe in the things we cannot see:

In your love for us

In your love for those around us

In the hope of eternity.

We dare to believe that another world is possible

That suffering can end

That we can play a part

In the kingdom to come.

We dare to believe in heaven on earth

In the light breaking through

In justice made new

In your love for us.

24 June

‘The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.’

Mark 4:36-34

Father, how can we ever understand the miracle of your ways? We see your creation and we know you are God. Yet we saw your mighty kingdom formed with the humility of a servant.

Faith and acts of kindness grow into great good. We will never comprehend how your kingdom comes, but we recognise its fruit. We see it in unexpected places: in sickness, in poverty, in conflict. We see it the places we wouldn’t want to live. Sometimes we see it in our own lives.

Your kingdom come, Lord – in us and in your world.
