Things to pray for this week …
- Pray that we may be helped to learn from the lesson that Jesus gave to his Disciples that greatness among his followers should be measured by their ability to live as His servants.
- Pray for Emma and Ellie-May being baptised today and for their families; that they will grow together in their love for God and one another as they continue to walk in the Christian faith.
- Remember all those who have been affected by the floods in South Wales and the South West, particularly the weak and vulnerable; pray that they will have the resources and support to clear up and restore their homes and also build up relationships in their communities.
- As we come to a critical time in the Brexit negotiations pray that all concerned will seek to agree the basis on which the separation from the EU will work. Pray that a mutually beneficial structure will be agreed that will enable crucial trading and cooperative relationships.
- Pray for peace in the Middle East, remembering the children, families and teachers grieving for those killed on the school bus in Yemen.
Collect for Trinity 21
in whose service lies perfect freedom:
teach us to obey you
with loving hearts and steadfast wills;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
