Prayer focus for the week beginning 22nd October 2023:

Before you pray, give thanks that ‘You, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer. (Ps.86 V.5)

• Tetbury Praying the Town: Lee Walk, Breuse Court, Fitzherbert Close & Box Close
• The Parish of Long Newnton
• The Choir, that they may feel valued and inspired as they lead the worship songs
• The Departed and those who mourn their loss remembering especially Robert “Rob” Bell (Thanksgiving Friday 27th October at 2.00pm at St Marys’ Tetbury) and Vivienne Pople (Funeral Thursday 2nd November at 2.00pm at St Marys’ Tetbury). We give thanks for their lives, and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends
• Year’s Mind: Dr Svend Kold (22/10) and Michele Larkin (26/10). (“Year’s Mind” is to mark the first anniversary of a death –often a difficult time for family and friends)
• Praying for St Mary’s School: Year 3 Beech Class with Mr Bartrop and Mrs Rush
• Praying for Rueben Pitchford being baptised in Holy Trinity, Long Newnton on Sunday 29th October and his parents and Godparents
• Local issues: give thanks for all who work in Tetbury in Bloom as they begin planting for spring bulb displays and take down the summer basket displays which have so enhanced the town
• National issues: for wisdom and sound judgment for those deciding the future of HS2, as increasing costs are balanced against its possible benefits to the more northern areas of the country
• World issues: pray for all missionaries and Christian mission organisations, as they seek to carry out the commands of Jesus to go and preach the Gospel to all nations.
