Pentecost 14

Bible Readings

First reading: Exodus 12:1-14
Psalm: Psalm 149
Second reading: Romans 13:8-14
Gospel: Matthew 18:15-20


Jesus promises his continuing presence. Even as I pray alone, I am united with others who pray at this time, with all of those who read this gospel today, with those who use Sacred Space just now. I grow in awareness that Jesus wants to be present to me, is present to me, loves me and calls me to life. 


Please pray for

• safety for all while in shutdown, remembering those with health concerns. 

• wisdom for our State and Territory Governments in managing the COVID-19 crisis and border restrictions.

• Discernment and courage for the Commonwealth Government in regard to Australia’s economic downturn.

• Pray for those people in Canberra whose employment or business have been affected by COVID-19.

• Patience, understanding and commitment by people everywhere to observe Covid-19 restrictions.
