FOR OUR PRAYERS … . • • • • • • • • •

We pray for our local schools during ‘Pray for Schools Fortnight’. We pray for the safe return of the young girls abducted from a secondary school in North-Eastern Nigeria by Islamist extremists. We pray for the planning and organisation of the Ultimate Church Visit Week beginning 19 May and for those who will attend. For the peoples of UKRAINE, that peace would reign in this troubled country. For Jo Gaskin who is remaining in hospital with ill health. For our members who are struggling with ill-health in body, mind or spirit. For the Christians in MALI who are under severe pressure from Islamist extremists. The claiming of the ‘SQUARE MILE’ around our hall in prayer over the next weeks and months. DON’T FORGET – to use the Prayer Network – see Audrey Beeching or Jo Gaskin. ‘PRAYER FOR THIS WEEK – Vocations Sunday’

‘Lord, we pray for those who believe You are calling them into an area of ministry, whether within the Church or out in the wider community. Please direct them to find wise counsellors who will help them discover Your purposes for them.. AMEN’
