Sunday, 04 October: Genesis 2:18-24; Psalm 128:1-6; Hebrews 2:9-11; Mark 10:2-16 ~ the two are united into one… forever

Creator God, in Christ You call man and woman to the fullness of glory for which You created them in Your image. Heal our hardened hearts, renew our obedience to Your spoken will, and conform our lives to Your gracious design. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
