Prayer for the month

Two Prayers for November:

A prayer for Remembrancetide:

Lord God, you rule over the universe; have mercy on our broken and divided world. Shed abroad your peace in human hearts and banish from this planet the instinct for conflict; that all races and peoples may learn to live as members of one family and in obedience to your laws; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

A prayer for growth in our discipleship:

Almighty Father, we thank you for giving us the Bible as your written Word. Guide us, we pray, in our reading of its pages that we may learn its teaching and understand its meaning; that your message will come to be written in our hearts and made manifest in our lives; for the glory of Jesus, the living Word, Amen
