Suggestions For Your Prayers…
- Continue to pray for God’s strengthening hand on the recently bereaved, those managing daily consequences of ill health and other physical challenges and for those who are in hospital, waiting for test results or are recovering from treatment. Give thanks and pray for family and friends who are giving practical support and spiritual encouragement when it is needed.
- For the Christmas services at All Saints. That our welcome, teaching, music and hospitality communicates with people’s hearts and minds to be moved by the good news of Christ our Saviour.
- For ongoing work with the children at Riseley Primary School, for James taking assemblies and for Sam and the team running Aslan. Pray that they share the good news of Jesus love for all through the fun talks, games and activities they organise.
