Prayers for Madeleine McCann

Find Madeleine WebsiteThe Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, has written a special prayer to mark the one year anniversary of the abduction of Madeleine McCann.

The Prayer reads:

Father God,

We pray for Madeleine McCann.

Keep her safe and take away her fear and anxiety.

May your holy angels guard and protect her.

We pray that she may be reunited with those who love her.

Give hope to all her loved ones

And hear our cry for her safe return

We offer our prayer in the name of the Good Shepherd 

Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord.
