Prayer of the Week 18 October 2020

We praise you, Lord, for witnesses through the ages who have told your story and made you real to the next generation.
We thank you for people whose names are well known and prominent,
and we thank you for those whose names are long lost in the annals of history – but who are known to you.
We praise you for all whose good Christian lives have impacted on who we are, and what we are, and where we are.
We praise you that in every generation there are witnesses who stand out, who stand up to be counted, who make a difference to the Christian path. We praise you, Lord God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that we have been brought by word, by deed, by action to follow you.
