Prayer Diary - 25th June 2017
The Collect for today - Second Sunday after Trinity:
Lord God, the unfailing helper and guide of those whom you bring up in your unmovable fear and love, keep us, we pray, under the protection of your good providence and give us a continual reverence and love for your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Please pray for...
the sick and the bereaved:
our mission partners: Kyle Mulholland (St John's, Over) and Joseph Mayan (Uganda).
those serving in the Armed Forces:
those marrying this month:
our local schools:
- St Nicholas Catholic High School and St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School and other schools which members of the church are involved in.
- Hartford Church of England High School: for Christian pupils who dare to stand and be counted in school - that they would know God's presence and strength amid scorn.
