Almighty God, our heavenly father, you promised through your son Jesus Christ to hear us when we pray in faith. At a time when there are so many restrictions on our lives we thank you that the channel of prayer is still open to us.
We pray for your Church: May it find the courage always to point to the hope and comfort and peace you offer, especially in times of difficulty and sorrow.
Bless our Bishops Christopher, David, and Nicholas and all the clergy here in Stamford especially Father Neil and David who minister in this Parish. Inspire them with your Word and Spirit and sustain them during these challenging times.
