Prayer of the Day

Jul 25, 2020

SAINT JAMES THE APOSTLE

O gracious God,
we remember before You today Your servant and apostle James,
first among the Twelve to suffer martyrdom
for the Name of Jesus Christ;
and we pray that You will pour out upon the leaders of your Church
that spirit of self-denying service
by which alone they may have true authority among your people;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever. Amen.
