26th April – Fourth Sunday of Easter – Good Shepherd Sunday

I thought that the petitions in today’s Morning Prayer were worthy of our pondering consideration..

Let us pray to the Father, the all-powerful God, who raised up Jesus, our prince and our Saviour.goodshepherd
Glorify us, Lord, with the glory of Christ.
Father, you brought your beloved Son from the darkness of death to the light of glory;
  let us enter into the regions of your own wonderful light.
Glorify us, Lord, with the glory of Christ.
You saved us through faith in Jesus Christ;
  help us to live today in the grace of our baptism.
Glorify us, Lord, with the glory of Christ.
You have told us to seek the things that are in heaven;
  enable us to resist the attraction of sin.
Glorify us, Lord, with the glory of Christ.
Reveal the riches of our hidden life in Christ
  that men may see the signs of the new heaven and the new earth.
Glorify us, Lord, with the glory of Christ.
