7 June 2017Tomorrow we vote. Big decision time. Pray for all who have to make life-changing decisions today.

26 June 2017Pray for the PCC Standing Committee meeting tonight. Pray too for Kenya and Tanzania. In both Christianity is under a degree of pressure from Islam, and in the latter there are regular bombings and other acts of violence, and also a substantial problem of managing Somali refugees.
27 June 2017Pray for all who maintain and enhance our environment; those who campaign against the abuse of God's creation.
28 June 2017Pray for all who feel lost today – actually, or mentally, or just left behind by the 'modern world'.
29 June 2017The feast day of St Peter. Peter never could quite 'get' Jesus; never quite understood. Maybe that's us – we want to but we feel we manage to get it a bit wrong. 'Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus.'
30 June 2017We pray for all who have the responsibility of parenthood and grandparenthood.
