Prayer

At St Mary's, we consider it a privilege to pray on behalf of all those we know and don't know, who are unwell, in self-isolation or are feeling a high level of anxiety at this time.  We do not forget the caregivers who are working tirelessly to ensure the safety and wellbeing of others.

If you wish the Church to pray for you, a member of your family or a friend, please let us know by submitting your prayer to prayer@stmaryshortlands.church.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen
