Immediately before Jesus ascended into Heaven he said to his disciples, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who does not believe will be condemned”. (Mark 16:15-16)
An unmissable offer!
God be in my head and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes and in my looking.
God be in my mouth and in my speaking.
God be in my heart and in my thinking.
God be at my end and at my departing. (Sarum Book of Hours, 1514)
Prayer: Faith (Arjuna – 8th Century)
Supreme God, your light is brighter than the sun,
your purity whiter than mountain snow,
you are present wherever I go.
All people of wisdom praise you.
So I too put faith in all your words,
knowing that everything you teach is true.
Neither the angels in heaven or the demons in hell
can know the perfection of your wisdom,
for it is beyond all understanding.
Only your Spirit knows you;
only you can know your true self.
You are the source of all being,
the power of all power,
the rule of all creatures.
