Prayer focus for the week beginning 12th December 2021:
• Tetbury Praying the Town: Romney Road
• May God’s blessing be with the Posada as it travels from family to family in the Parish, reminding them of the message of Christmas: God with us in His gift of Jesus.
• The Parish of Long Newnton
• The Departed and those who mourn their loss. We give thanks for their lives, and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends.
• Praying for William and Zoe who are getting married in St Mary the Virgin, Beverston on Friday
• Praying for Iris who is being baptised in Holy Trinity, Long Newnton on Sunday and her parents and Godparents.
• Praying for St Mary’s School: Year 5 Elm Class with Ms Browning and Mrs Lee
• For the Christmas events in Tetbury and the benefice – may they foster a community spirit.
We give thanks for all those who commit time, imagination and energy in organising them.
• National issues: for those who are lonely and isolated, that they may be shown friendship and care by neighbours, family or local churches, especially at Christmas
Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my supplications! In thy faithfulness answer me, in thy righteousness! Psalm 143 V.1
