Maundy Thursday Morning Prayers

Please use the prayers below for your personal reflections this Maundy Thursday-


It is by your love for one another that everyone will recognise you as my disciples.

John 13:35


My life is an instant,

an hour which passes by.

My life is a moment

which I have no power to stay.

You know, O my God,

that to love you here on earth

I have only today.

Therese of Lisieux, 1873-97


O God,

make us more thankful for what we have received,

more content with what we have,

and more mindful of other people in need:

we ask it for his sake who lived for us in poverty,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Simon Baynes
