Prayer focus for the week beginning 26th December 2021
Prayer focus for the week beginning 26th December 2021:
• Tetbury Praying the Town: Shearers Way and Merchants Walk
• Family life: that families may enjoy being together in peace and security over the Christmas period
• The Parish of St Marys
• The Departed and those who mourn their loss especially Syd Mosdell. We give thanks for their lives, and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends.
• May we take the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful local countryside. We give thanks for all who have worked to achieve the A Rocha UK Eco Church Silver Award at St Marys for its environmental awareness and care
• National issues: may we look forward to the new year with hope rather than apprehension, trusting in God’s protection and the fulfilment of His loving purposes
Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my supplications! In thy faithfulness answer me, in thy righteousness! Psalm 143 V.1
