Over the next few weeks you will likely hear quite a lot about "prayer" here.
It is something that you can do now. Whenever you pray, whatever you say, be assured that God is listening.
At the same time, it is something that is also enriched by our coming together: something that we wait for.
Shirley Sewell, our warden and frequent intercessor at St. Matthew's Church in Florence, has passed on this prayer. You will hear a version of it prayed this Sunday. You are free to offer up these words to God, right now. Read them, pray them, and hope for the day when we can join our prayers together in body and in Spirit.
