Jesus said, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’  John 6.35

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits you have given me, for all the pains and insults you have borne for me. Since I cannot now receive sacramentally, I ask you to come spiritually into my heart. O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother, may I know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, day by day. Amen.     After the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples,  ‘I am with you always’.  Be with me today, as I offer myself to you.  Hear my prayers for others and for myself and keep me in your care.  Amen.

O God, help me to trust you, help me to know that you are with me, help me to rest in the knowledge that nothing can separate me from your love revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
