O God, whose glory the heavens are telling, the earth your power, the sea your might, and whose greatness all the hosts of heaven proclaim; to you belongs all glory, honour, majesty and praise; both now and for ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.Liturgy of Saint James (5th century)
Holy God, come and breathe life.
Renew and revive your Church.
Call us, again and again, into your ways of transforming love and great mercy.
Reform us until we become more like you, for the sake of the world you came to save.
Blow away all within us that is unworthy, enliven all that brings hope and joy,
and fill us again with courage and boldness to proclaim the gospel. Amen.
