Please take time to regularly pray for the people listed on the Diocesan intercession calendar, our various events and our projects and include our Diocesan prayer in your branch meetings.

MU Oxford Diocesan Prayer 2020

Faithful God,
we praise you for your steadfast love and the truth of your eternal word;
the rock on which we build our lives.
Give us new hope and the confidence to trust your promises,
that as we reach out in loving service to families both near and far,
we will find you already ahead of us,
bringing your Kingdom into being,
in every community,
in every family,
in every heart.
Amen
