Prayer of the day

Power of God, be our protection; Wisdom of God, be our guide;
Word of God, be our inspiration; Shield of God, be our defence;
Son of God, be our salvation; now and always. Amen.

Saint Patrick's Breastplate, Book of Armagh, 9th century

Faithful God,
when you call, may we respond;
when we falter, be our guide.
When you speak, may we hear;
when we question, be our wisdom.
When you ask, may we answer;
when we hesitate, be our resolve.
When you show, may we see;
when we disregard, be our conscience.
When you lead, may we follow;
when we stray, be our shepherd.
When you send, may we go;
when we fear, be our courage.
When you challenge, may we listen;
when we fail, be our rock.
When you give, may we receive;
and may we love, as you first loved us. Amen.

Paul Martin, Bolton and Rochdale District Chair
