A Prayer for


I pray for all those who visit our churches, abbeys and cathedrals. May they be filled with the knowledge of God's love and receive strength and comfort for their needs. I pray for all those who are lonely, confused, afraid, ill or bereaved, that they may find comfort and hope for the future.

I give thanks that the love of God is with all His people. May we always feel His presence within us and surrounding us.

A Prayer for


Please pray for the repose of the soul of James Trickey, killed in collision with a car while cycling near Peterborough on 23 December 2014. His home is in Cheltenham where he was a Music Scholar at Dean Close (2006-10) having previously been a chorister at Gloucester Cathedral. He sang on many occasions in this Abbey Church and at Oxford University he was an academical lay clerk (choral scholar) at Christ Church Cathedral. At the time of his death, he was a Bass lay clerk in the choir of Peterborough Cathedral. Rest in peace, James.

I pray for those who go hungry in our world, those who are in pain or are suffering from disease, those troubled through war and conflict, those who are without love, hope and friends, those grieving the loss of loved ones, and all those who are in physical or mental pain this Christmas.
