- Look at the list of advice that Paul gives here. Is there anything that makes you react negatively when you read it or that you are particularly struggling with? Think about why you react like that? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to understand if there is something in your attitude that need to be relinquished.
- Is there a particular verse or phrase that speaks to you today. Repeat it slowly to yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to speak through it.
Please include in your prayers:
- the refugees and the European response to their needs
Eternal God, Light of the nations,
in Christ you make all things new:
guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of your Spirit,
that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness.
Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust
that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
