Prayer during the day on Friday

Preparation

O God make speed to save us
O Lord, make haste to help us

Make me a clean heart, O God
And renew a right spirit within me.

Praise

Jesus, Saviour of the world,
Come to us in your mercy:
We look to you to save and help us.

By your cross and your life laid down,
You set your people free:
We look to you to save and help us.

When they were ready to perish,
You saved your disciples:
We look to you to come to our help.

In the greatness of your mercy,
Loose us from our chains,
Forgive the sins of all your people.

Make yourself known as our Saviour
And mighty deliverer;
Save us and help us that we may praise you.

Come now and dwell with us,
Lord Christ Jesus:
Hear our prayer and be with us always.

And when you come in your glory:
Make us to be one with you
And to share the life of your kingdom.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
