This week, Of Your Charity, Pray For…

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'.

In a time of plague

Grant, we beseech thee, merciful Lord,  help and deliverance unto us who are visited with grievous sickness and mortality.

Sanctify to us this our sore distress, and prosper with thy continual blessing those who labour to devise for mankind protection against distress and pain:  through him who both healed and hallowed pain, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord, we pray to thee for those whom we love but see no longer. Grant them thy peace, let light perpetual shine upon them, and in thy loving wisdom and almighty power work in them the good purpose of thy perfect will, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
