Sustained by prayer

14 Dec 2023 • From Bishop Richard Jackson

In this week's video, Bishop Richard reflects on the privilege of the visit to Hereford last weekend by the Archbishop of Canterbury who joined us for conversation, a prayer walk, and prayers for peace in the Cathedral.  The highlight for a number of people was a conversation with Archbishop Justin about his own prayer life and faith.

As this Year of Prayer draws to a close, marked by a celebratory service in the Cathedral, Bishop Richard's hope is that patterns of praying, established through this year, will continue and deepen as we move into the Year of Faith in 2024.

Bishop Richard concludes: 'As we look to the next phase of our life together, let Habbakuk’s prayer be ours, “Lord I have heard of your fame, I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known.”'
