Prayer is an integral part of the daily life of Christians, but it can often be difficult to know how to pray or what to pray about.
Some help with daily prayer can be found through the Church of England's daily prayer 'feed'.
If you would like prayers said at St Mary's for someone or something in particular just write us a brief message in the spaces below.
