Come and Pray

Come and Pray.

Whatever our view of the outcome of last week's referendum (and they will be many and varied) we may all agree on one thing: Our nation is going through some difficult days. So let us be a praying people.

 

Please pray:

  • For our current government. For David Cameron and George Osbourne. For wisdom and leadership through these next weeks and months.

  • For our political parties - as they seek new vision and leadership.

  • For healing of division among people of differing opinions and outlooks.

  • For all the people who live in our beautifully diverse nation. That welcome and kindness and compassion will triumph over prejudice and hatred.


We can pray wherever we are. We can be praying in our homes and workplaces. It is also good to gather with others to pray. 

At 12noon and 5pm today (Monday 27th June) there will be a gathering in St Peter's Church for a time of quiet prayer.  All are very welcome to join us.  See below for other opportunities to pray with others during this week.

 

Stephen Webster (Vicar) Jema Ball (Associate Vicar) Lynda Davies (Curate)
