I want whatever You want for me –
(Not just resign myself to it,
Not submit to it as uncomplainingly as possible,
Not piously accept it – but)
I want whatever You want for me.
I want it because You want it.
I want it in whatever way You want it.
I want it for as long as You want it.’
Translated from the Latin by Hugh Bishop

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for our neighbours and those who support us through difficult times.
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
