Revd Ruth Parry is Superintendent Minister of the Ripon and Lower Dales Circuit in the York and Hull District. Ruth lives in Ripon with her husband John who is also her SCUBA diving partner (dive buddy). When underwater Ruth sees such amazing things that she is reminded of the diversity of God’s creation and breathing helps her to pray.
Listen to Ruth’s prayer here:
Collect for Purity
Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known and from whom no secrets are hidden, cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy Name through Christ our Lord. Amen
