In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Listen to the gospel of Luke (7:11-17)

 Soon afterwards he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother's only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, 'Do not weep.' Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, 'Young man, I say to you, rise!' The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, 'A great prophet has risen among us!' and 'God has looked favourably on his people!' This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.

Nothing stands between us and God! Listen to this prayer for courage:

Loving God,
give us all the courage we need
to go the way you shepherd us,
that when you call
we may go without fear.

If you ask us to come to you
across the waters,
may we not be frightened as we go.
And if you bid us climb the hill,
may we not notice that it is a struggle,
aware only of the happiness of your company.
You made us for yourself,
that we should travel with you
and see you at last in your unveiled beauty where you are light and happiness and endless home.

Let us pray with the words that Jesus taught us:

Our Father,
Who art in heaven, 
Hallowed be Thy Name. 
Thy Kingdom come. 
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those
​who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
