Hymn I’ve Got Peace Like a River #577
Prayer: O God, we come to you in the assurance that you are present with us now. We do not have to seek your presence. We are daily living in your presence. Make us aware of it. Make it real to us. And help us in these moments of prayer to know that we are speaking to one who is near and not far off, whose love is all around us and who knows our every need. We ask it through our Saviour Jesus the Christ. Amen. (a prayer by Frank Colquhoun and published in Contemporary Parish Prayers edited by F. Colquhoun.)
