Prayer Diary - 18th November 2018
The Collect for today - Twenty fifth Sunday after Trinity:
O God, whose blessed Son was revealed so that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life, grant that we, who have this hope, may purify ourselves as he is pure so that, when he shall appear in power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom, where he lives and reigns with you, the Father, and with you, the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Please pray for...
the sick and the bereaved:
our mission partners: Jemma Fitzsimmons (OM) and Joseph Mayan (Barnabas Ministries in Uganda).
our local schools:
- Cloughwood Academy & Greenbank School, and other schools which members of the church are involved in.
- Hartford Church of England High School.
- For ourselves, that we would be ever conscious of the increasingly anti-Christian culture in which we now live, and in which our children are being educated.
