Daily Hope – by the Bishop of Exeter

Bishop Nick and Bishop Jackie join me in assuring you of our prayers at this time. As we experience the season of Advent, may Paul’s words shape our hearts and minds: ‘Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer’ (Romans 12:9). +Robert Exon

Loving God,
at this time of Advent,
while so many continue to suffer,
we pray for our nation and our world.
Give our leaders wisdom,
our Health Service strength,
our people hope.
Lead us through these parched and difficult days
to the fresh springs of joy and comfort
that we find in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
