MRBC Prayer Meeting 3rd April 9-30am

Our regular Prayer Meeting will be online on Zoom and details have already been circulated.

Holy One of God,
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
who ransoms the souls of the faithful,
sets the captives free,
brings sight to the blind and
gives life to those who are perishing:
Death has no victory over you
or your kingdom.
Evil slinks away from your presence.

Rejoice all you nations!
Celebrate all you peoples!
Christ is Lord forever—
His reign is unending!  Amen.
