Prayer Topics:
Please pray, whether in Church or at home, for –

  • The innocent victims and those injured in the senseless gun attacks in the USA, as a result of knife crime in our cities and towns, and of random acts of violence; remembering especially the young French boy who was severely injured while visiting Tate Modern with his family – we pray that he will recover fully in time.
  • Those within our Benefice who are actively involved in the vacancy process, those currently preparing the Benefice profile, those chosen to be part of the selection panel, and those working in any other capacity; we pray that they will be guided by you Lord in all this important work. We also pray Lord that you already prompting and preparing that special someone who, in time, will come to us.
  • Those who are preparing to be Baptised and for those who will support them in their life with Christ.
For Evie who is being Baptised today, Sunday 11 August, in the Mission Church.
  • Those preparing to be married that the Lord will guide their lives together and they will have the support of their families and friends. 
For Bambi Mochine and Ewan Hyde who are to be married at Walton on Saturday 17 August.   And we also pray with thanks for Bob and Vera who this week celebrate sixty years of marriage.
  • Those known to us who have recently died and for their family and friends as they grieve; praying that they may know the Lord’s love and support in the coming days.
Especially for Michael Kidd who passed away recently and whose funeral will take place on 9 September
  • Those known to us who are currently unwell or infirm and for all the health care professionals at every level who care for them and for their families and others who support them.
Especially for John, during these final stages of his cancer journey and for Mary and the family as they support him; praying that they may know the love of Jesus at this difficult time.
  • Those who currently are concerned about their health and wellbeing; praying that they may find peace and reassurance.  

For these and all things we pray in the name of Jesus.               Amen
