Divine Love..... Our rock, our trust and our Hope
We are formed in the womb of divine love
And have been consecrated to build and to plant
Christ, reveals the Word of Love in all of humanity
and we seek to give voice to that same Word.
As we share our Faith...... hold in communion the Hope of each moment
and give of ourselves in Love.
that each word we utter is touched with Divine love, every action is aligned with faith in the power of love and that we hope to move always in integrity with God’s Divine Word... Give thanks for the variety of gifts that create this wonderful body...and rejoice in the foundations on which we build... and in the foundations that lay down for others.
Pray that we each may build toward a tomorrow that is filled with light for all people. Give thanks for all who contribute to our lives and to our being, those who share their gifts with us and with others. Pray that we may give of ourselves so that all may be made fully alive. Give thanks for all that is unfolding in creativity and love. Give thanks for all that we share in common with all people and with all faiths
Pray that we may hear when others speak of truth. Give thanks for those who bring light into our lives and for the opportunities we have to bring light into the lives of others. Give thanks for our children and for all who will continue the journey that we are on - and build on the foundations we lay. Pray that we might feed others and nurture within ourselves a spirit of compassion.

We give thanks for those whose dedication and vision enabled the foundation and development of this diocese.
Guide those of us now entrusted with this responsibility.
Encourage us and give us the commitment, enthusiasm and inspiration we need.
May we have breadth of vision and generosity that will enable us to provide a solid foundation of faith for future generations.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Daily Prayer from Perth Anglican Diocese See left hand column
Prayer in the tradition of St Paul
Creator of Life, of light and all Love, we pray thee
to fill this house with thy Spirit.
Here may the strong renew their strength and seek
for their working lives a noble consecration.
Here may the poor find succour and the friendless
Here may the tempted find power, the sorrowing
comfort and the bereaved find the truth that death
hath no dominion over their beloved.
Here let the fearing find a new courage and the
doubting have their faith and hope confirmed.
Here may the careless be awakened and all that are
oppressed be freed.
Hither may many be drawn by thy love and go
hence, their doubts resolved and faith renewed,
their sins forgiven and their hearts aflame with thy
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
