Lord, as we journey together at St Paul's,
Help us to grow, guided by the teachings of Jesus,
the writings of St Paul and the traditions of our faith.
Create in us a generous heart,
where our relationship with each other is built on peace, love, dignity and justice,
so that we may experience the words of St Paul, "to live is Christ".
Help us to make St Paul's a place of wisdom and learning;
Where all feel welcomed and safe.
Guide us in the development of our gifts and talents;
So that they can be used in the service of others.
Spirit of God present in our lives today;
Inspire us to value the small things of life
and to meet the great challenges with generous courage.
St Paul... pray for us.
