Prayers and Intercessions   

The Companions Prayer

O God, by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ, you have brought life and immortality to light. Give us grace to die to sin, that we may ever live with you in the joy of his resurrection, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen

For Companions’ assistance


Almighty God, who through your only begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: we humbly beseech you that, as by your special grace going before us you put into our minds good desires, so by your continued help we may bring them to good effect, through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

For the Community of the Resurrection 

Almighty and everlasting God, who formed your Church to be of one heart and one soul in the power of the Resurrection and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit: renew her evermore in her first love and grant such a measure thereof to the brethren of the Resurrection, that their life may be hallowed. The ir way directed and their work made fruitful, to the good of your Church and the glory of your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the College of the Resurrection  

O God and Father of us all, you send labourers into your vineyard: set on fire many hearts with a sense of their vocation and with an eager response to your call. To those whom you have gathered at the College of the Resurrection give grace to prepare in all earnestness and zeal, that with entire concentration of heart and life they may labour hereafter in your holy Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

For the Society of the Resurrection  

Lord Jesus Christ, you call Christians to follow you with discipline in the path of the Gospel; we pray you to bless the Society of the Resurrection; may its members follow you gladly, live their commitments faithfully and witness to you truthfully. May your worship be the Society’s life and its fruit be public witness to the Kingdom, within the mission of the Church to bring all people to life abundant in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Water of Life

by CR Companion Judith Napper

O Jesus Christ, dweller of my soul hear me when I cry unto Thee. Let my eternal spring of life flow free from deep within me and by Thy Holy Grace may by inner pools of water forever be replenished. May they be so crystal clear and sparkling that I see Thy reflection from within their depths. Let my silver streams of happiness overflow, cascading through life itself and then, dear Lord, when I kneel before you, let the waters of life in rivulets of pure passion and indescribable joy run from my body, to fall in pools of love at Your feet.  O take me sweet Lord, I yield totally and so offer You myself, here and now for all eternity.
