Praying in Easter with USPG:
17, Tuesday 28 April 2020
I am continuing to use the USPG Prayer Diary, Pray with the World Church, for my morning prayers and reflections throughout this Season of Easter. USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel) is the Anglican mission agency that partners churches and communities worldwide in God’s mission to enliven faith, strengthen relationships, unlock potential, and champion justice. It was founded in 1701.
Throughout this week (26 to 2 May 2020), the USPG Prayer Diary is focussing on the Church of North India’s Year of Jubilee. This theme was introduced in the Prayer Diary on Sunday.
Tuesday 28 April 2020:
Let us rejoice with the Church of North India as it celebrates its fiftieth birthday all through this year. Thank you Lord for half a century of ‘unity, witness, and service.’
The Readings: Acts 7: 51 to 8: 1a; Psalm 31: 1-5, 16; John 6: 30-35.
The Collect of the Day (Easter III):
who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples
with the sight of the risen Lord:
Give us such knowledge of his presence with us,
that we may be strengthened
and sustained by his risen life
and serve you continually in righteousness and truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
