Prayer of the Week 21 April 2024

Merciful God, you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be the Good Shepherd,
and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again:
keep us always under his protection and give us grace to follow in the steps of the Risen Christ.
Teach us to hear your voice and to follow your command,
that all your people may be gathered into one flock,
to your glory and that of the Saviour slain for our sins.
