We pray for those needing to be set free into love, joy and peace and
allow new beginnings to blossom into life.
“Love is come again, like wheat that springeth green.” . Amen

 

APRIL COLLECT
Lord of all life and power, who through the mighty resurrection of your Son overcame the old order of sin
and death to make all things new to him; grant that we,
being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ may reign with him in glor; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity. Amen
