A prayer in praise for the gift of the day:

In Christ Jesus
the life-giving law of the Spirit
has set us free
from the law of sin and death.
Let us worship God.

Blessed are you, O God,
from our earliest days
you call each of us by name,
to hear you in Jesus, your anointed One,
that we may draw others to be his disciples.
For these and all his mercies, we praise you:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
Blessed be God for ever!
