Our prayers focus today is on our town of Walsall. We are blessed with many churches of different denominations who all seek to do God’s will for the citizens of Walsall. There are also many charities and other faith organisations who work tirelessly to help the poor, distressed or needy of our town. Loving Lord, we ask you to bless all the initiatives taking place in 2014 whose purpose is to give support and succour to those in greatest need. Help them all to work co-operatively and harmoniously so that the greatest good may be achieved for the largest number of people. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
