‘Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it’.

These words of our Lord are from our Gospel reading for today. If we ask, and it seems our prayer is not answered, it may well be that the prayer is answered, but not in the way we might have expected. God is always faithful, and He keeps His promises. One promise is, in the words of Julian of Norwich, that ‘all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well’.

May we trust these words, even in these very uncertain times, and may God bless you this day.
