13 May

One of the prayers in the Daily Devotions services in our prayer book is:

God of work and rest and pleasure
grant that what we do this week
may be for us an offering
rather than a burden;
and for those we serve, may it be the help they need.

In a time of prayer, reflect on the ways in which service infuses your life. Ask God to present you with opportunities to serve.

A New Zealand Prayer Book – He Karakia Mihinare o Aoteatora contains all manner of gems. If you haven’t already discovered them, try the Daily Devotions services (which begin on page 104). If you don’t have your own prayer book you can follow this link:
