When our faith
stands at the grave,
for a stone that’s rolled away,
When our faith
is short of
though the truth is there to see,
When our faith,
beset by doubt, sees
than an empty tomb today,
Bring to mind
the cry of Mary,
‘I have seen the Lord!’
and grant us faith to believe! Amen.
Prayer is one way we participate in a holding environment, as described here. We understand prayer as a way of holding others in mind, and remembering ourselves back to God, that we might know that we are all held in God’s mind.
Paul encourages the Church to pray without ceasing, to be a community of people who weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. Such lived empathy is one aspect of the call of the Gospel, and we mean to respond to it.
It’s in this spirit that we open up this space for you to make your prayer requests or for you to access those already made, that you might join us in prayer: prayers of concern, prayers of joy, prayers of worship, prayers for whatever is on your heart and soul.
If you would like us to pray for you, or some person or circumstance you know, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, putting “Prayer request” in the subject line, and we will add your prayer to the list below.
If you would like to join us in prayer, hold the following requests in prayer at any time. And join us for “Virtual Vespers” as we pray individually, wherever we are, at some time on Thursday evenings.
