in all dangers and adversities;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Almighty God,
you have broken the tyranny of sin

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Post Communion Prayer

O God,
whose beauty is beyond our imagining
and whose power we cannot comprehend:
Give us a glimpse of your glory on earth
but shield us from knowing more than we can bear
until we may look upon you without fear;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
