Lord in you we live and move and have our being. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, so that we may magnify you and worthily serve you.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see – how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him………. Is anyone crying for help? God is listening ready to rescue you. (Psalm 34)
Come and praise the living God! It is the churches’ birthday today – Pentecost. God doesn’t come and go. God Lasts. He’s creator of all you can see or imagine.

As we try to care for your creation Lord help us to stand up and be counted in looking after your world.
God Brilliant Lord … I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewellery, Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
