A Prayer Attributed to St Richard

Thanks be to you Our Lord Jesus Christ for all the benefits which you have given us,

for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us. 

Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother, 

may we know you more clearly, love you more dearly

and follow you more nearly, day by day. Amen

A Prayer for the Church at Chalk  

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for St Mary the Virgin, Chalk,

for more than a thousand years of witness and worship

and for all our inheritance in the faith of Christ.

We thank you for the vision you have given to us.

Help us to act on it faithfully so that,

guided and strengthened by your Holy Spirit,

we may be evermore Christ-like and at the heart of our community.

We ask this in his name and for his glory. Amen.
