We pray for those attending the Bereavement Support Group this morning and for all those known to us who have lost loved ones recently. Compassionate Father, we ask that you will give them strength to cope as they mourn and that they will feel your presence and support. Thank you Lord for those in our church who lead this group.
We pray for those attending 9.30 Holy Communion, Tai Chi and the Coffee Bar. May the friendship and fellowship they experience provide a welcome break during these weeks of winter particularly for those who live alone. We pray for and give grateful thanks for the efforts of those who take the service and run the activities on Thursday mornings. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
