Lord Jesus Christ,
alive and at large in the world,
help me to follow and find you there today,
in the places where I work,
meet people,
spend money,
and make plans.
Take me as a disciple of your kingdom,
to see through your eyes,
and hear the questions you are asking,
to welcome all others with your trust and truth,
and to change the things that contradict God’s love,
by the power of the cross
and the freedom of your Spirit.

John V. Taylor, 1914 –  2001, English bishop and theologian
