Lord of faith and truth we bless your holy name.
Lord Jesus, you shocked your disciples by making them face up to your cross and their own.
Give to your Church courage to emulate your sacrificial love…
May we find our true life in you.
Lord Jesus, you spoke of suffering at the hands of elders and community leaders. Give to
all who lead due awareness of the awesome responsibility they hold . ..
May we never confuse kingdoms of this world with your eternal Kingdom.
Lord Jesus, Peter struggled to accept the danger and purpose of your actions.
Be with all who are anxious for a loved one whose job places them grave danger . ..
Give us grace to overcome evil with good
