Prayers this week for our Parish and the wider world
Points for Prayer
For the World.... give thanks for the sacrifice and dedication of firefighters and their support teams. Ask that the Holy Spirit protects them as they work to protect others.
For the World.... Pray for Christian Aid partners in northern Syria; that they would continue to support and help women and young people have a better future through entrepreneurship training. Praise God that through previous training, young people and women received small business start-up grants so they can now provide for their families, and contribute positively to their communities.
For the Church..... pray for churches in Malaysia,
Especially Pastor Raymond Koh, abducted in February 2017 and still missing. Ask that God protects Pastor Raymond, and hold his family and friends in your prayers.
For our Community …. Continue to pray for the fire services and police investigators, who are investigating the Highfields fire and all who are supporting the family at this time.
….for those who suffer in body, mind or spirit: Brenda, Valerie, Lisa, Derek, Dot, Angela, John
….for the recently departed:
Greville Sexton, Dorothy Garside, Nora Crumpton, Elizabetg Richardson, Patricia Hariess
Roy Newton, Riley Holt, Keegan, Tilly Rose and Olly Unitt
+ May they rest in peace and rise in glory
