Jerusalem

Christ the King Sunday, 20 Nov: 2 Samuel 5:1-3; Psalm 122:1-5; Colossians 1:12-20; Luke 23:35-43 ~ the victory of love

God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, you gave us your Son, the beloved one who was rejected, the Savior who appeared defeated. Yet the mystery of his kingship illumines our lives. Show us in his death the victory that crowns the ages, and in his broken body the love that unites heaven and earth. We ask 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.

Morning Prayer: 06 Aug – Revelation 21:10,23 ~ show me your glory

Father, at the Transfiguration in glory of your Only-Begotten Son, you confirmed the mysteries of faith by the witness to Jesus of the prophets Moses and Elijah. You foreshadowed there what I shall be when you bring my sonship to its perfection. Grant that by listening to the voice of Jesus I may become heirs with him, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
