Prayer Topics:
Please pray, whether in Church or at home, for –
  • The family of Nora Quoirin the missing teenager who has been found dead after an exhaustive search for her in Malaysia.  Please pray for them as they grieve but also for the families of those who have members missing or estranged and pray for those ‘separated ones’ that our Lord will protect them from danger and bring them peace and reconciliation with their families.
  • For our young people as they receive their results from BTec, GCSEs and A Levels and as they begin to firm up their plans for their futures whether in industry or commerce, college or university – we pray that they will be guided to make sound choices.
  • 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.
Tina who has attended Yeovil Hospital because of heart problems.
  • 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

For a flavour of the exercise session take a look at senior fitness by Tona on youtube
