GRANT, we beseech thee, merciful Lord, help and deliverance unto us, who are visited with grievous mortality and sickness. Sanctify to us this our sore distress and prosper with thy continual blessing those who labour to devise for humankind protection against disease and pain; through him who both healed and hallowed pain, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for Time of Plague and Sickness, Book of Common Prayer 1928 Revision
If there is one thing, I think we have learnt as a church over the last year it is the power of prayer and the power of collective prayer to root us in our faith and to encourage and strengthen us in the face of continuing adversity. We now have Morning & Evening Prayer led every day on Zoom by members of the Ministry Team and we regularly have 5-7 people praying the office from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. We also pray on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays as well as at our Online Eucharist on most Sundays for people who have requested prayers and have a Prayer Chain for prayer requests through Whats App. On Wednesdays and Fridays, we pray the litany as our intercessions after the Morning Prayer Office.
ON WEDNESDAYS WE NOW ALSO HAVE A HYBID MORNING PRAYER AND LITANY WITH SOME OF US IN CHURCH IN PERSON AND OTHERS ON ZOOM
We pray the Prayer Book as our Daily Office as part of our commitment to draw upon a variety of traditions within out church whilst remaining rooted in our Anglican heritage for our prayer and worship. See on this page how in pre COVID times we celebrated the Eucharist together as a church community.
