• Tetbury Praying the Town: Windsor Gardens & Elizabeth Gardens
• The Parish of St Marys
• Our Clergy with Permission to Officiate
• The Departed and those who mourn their loss remembering especially Paul, and Petronilla Trustram Eve. We give thanks for their lives, and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends.
• Praying for Leanne Rainford and SavannahBoulton being baptised on Sunday 9th April in St Marys’ Tetbury and their parents and Godparents.
• Local issues: For holiday activities being provided for children – that they may have fun and be kept safe
• National issues: for a satisfactory solution to the Junior Doctors’ strikes – may patients’ lives and wellbeing not be put at risk
• World issues: that the glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus and his victory over sin and death be celebrated throughout the world, especially in countries where Christians are restricted and persecuted
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Heb.4:16
