Prayer for Saturday 22nd March 2014

Today from our church family we pray for Toby Bhadwaj.


Today is World Water Day. We pray for Water Aid, working to provide water for health and hygiene to some of the world’s poorest people, and for Tear Fund, Christian Aid and other agencies who support this work. May many more people have access to clean water and sanitation during this decade and may we appreciate the luxury of our water supplies and try not to use them wastefully.

Heavenly Father, in our prayers for Walsall today, we pray for its Christian Churches of all denominations and give thanks for their witness to you and for the charitable work they do for the town both together and individually. We pray for those of other faiths and for respect for each other’s beliefs and for dialogue, tolerance and understanding between all faiths. We give thanks for the work of all those who tirelessly raise funds and give their time for the charities in our town that support the sick, the lonely, the homeless and the vulnerable. We also pray for the work of the street pastors tonight in the town centre and that the support they give to those they meet will encourage a safe and supportive environment for everyone in the town.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
