A prayer for the city & people of Exeter

Creator God,
whose being encompasses all,
whose love excludes no-one and no-thing,
whose compassion is boundless and eternal:
we pray for the people and places of Exeter,
for all whose joys and worries, hopes and fears,
inhabit these buildings and walk these streets.
Pour out your blessings, we ask,
and may your Holy Spirit be both guardian and guide
in the ceaseless activities of city life.
This we ask in the name of Christ.
