INTERNATIONAL CALL TO PRAYER
WEDNESDAY 25TH MARCH AT MIDDAY
This started with an invitation from Pope Francis to Christians all over the world. He said:
“I invite the heads of the churches and the leaders of all the Christian communities, together with all Christians of the various confessions, to invoke the Almighty, the All Powerful God, by reciting contemporaneously the prayer that Our Lord Jesus has taught us,” he said.
“I therefore invite everyone to recite the Our Father at midday on March 25 next, on the day when many Christians recall the annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the Incarnation of the Word, so that the Lord may listen to the unanimous prayer of all his disciples that are preparing to celebrate the victory of the Risen Christ,” Francis said.
So, at midday tomorrow – which is the Feast of the Annunciation, or as it’s often known, Lady Day – if we possibly can, although we are scattered, let’s be gathered across Severn Loop in praying the Lord’s Prayer together.
God bless you, Mary-Lou.
A Prayer for these Unsettling and Anxious Days
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Revd Mary-Lou Toop 13 March 2020
