Gracious Father, revive your Church in our day, and make her holy, strong and faithful, for your glory’s sake in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Deanery Prayers:[St Mary’s Portchester]
Together with the Parish of St Mary’s Portchester, we give thanks for their open air services, beginning today, and for the forecasts of good weather for today and next Sunday.
We join with the parish in praying for their care for one another, and for the community. Both for their Parish care Visiting team and their bereavement support group, called “tea and company”. Lord, please guard and direct them at this troublesome time.
