Prayer focus for the week beginning 9th January 2022
Prayer focus for the week beginning 9th January 2022:
• Tetbury Praying the Town: Silver Street, Fox Hill and Rope Walk
• For toddler groups and after-school activities, that they may continue to provide opportunities for socialising and developing inter-personal skills
• The Parish of Long Newnton
• The Departed and those who mourn their loss, remembering especially Syd Mosdell, and all he has done for the community. We give thanks for their lives, and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends.
• Year’s Mind: Stephen Pockett (13/01) and Keith Wild (15/01). (“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 6 Oak Class with Mrs Cartledge/Mrs Calabria and Mrs Weston
• As we reflect on the events of Christmas as recorded in the gospels, may we desire and find ways to share the Good News as the shepherds, Simeon and Anna did
• National issues: for all health workers and medical staff, as they continue to battle against Covid and other diseases
O Lord, I call upon you…give ear to my voice when I call to you! Let my prayer be counted as incense before you. Ps.141 Vs.1-2
Are you, or someone you know, in need of prayer? You are welcome to hang your prayer request on the prayer tree in the prayer corner at the front of St Marys church
