This is an opportunity to read through the prayers offered to God on our behalf by Maurice Sheen at our Sunday morning service.

The prayers followed a reading from John Chapter 6 v.24 – 35.

Maurice’s prayers focussed on the following:

  • In praise of  God our creator.
  • Fellowship and Mission.
  • Our Mission Partners.
  • Our broken world and those who suffer.
  • For worldwide co-operation in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic in poorer countries.
  • For those known to us who need our prayers.

The prayers concluded with the words of St Richard of Chichester:-

“Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits thou hast given me, for all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me.

O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother, may I know thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, and follow thee more nearly, day by day. Amen.
