Inspiration from the past

A prayer that had great significance for one of our greatest seafarers, as relevant for us today as it was too for those who fought and died during the 2nd World War which we remember today.

Sir Francis Drake’s Prayer.

O Lord, when thou givest to thy servants to endeavour in any great matter, grant us also to know that it is not the beginning but the continuing of the same until it be thoroughly finished that yieldeth the true glory, through him who for the finishing of thy work laid down his life, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Help us Lord, to remember with gratitude and thanks for all those who gave their lives so that we might live. Be with us too as we continue to tackle the on-going Coronavirus outbreak together. Amen

Go Well, Keep Well and Keep a’troshin’ (as the old boys out here in Norfolk say.) ULTREYA !
