Today from our church family we pray for Margaret Budding.
In our prayers for our town of Walsall today, we bring before you Lord all involved in transport, the media and essential services to our homes. We pray for those who are responsible for organising and delivering bus and rail services, for those who drive lorries and delivery vehicles throughout the borough, those who supply and manage gas, electricity and water and deal with waste from our homes and for everyone whose work takes them on our roads especially in cold and icy weather conditions and for their safety. Finally we pray for those who write our local newspapers, and for regional radio and television broadcasters. Help them to highlight injustice and to give a clear unbiased view of what is happening in our communities without exaggeration as well as highlighting positive aspects of life in our town.
Tonight at 8.30 pm is Earth Hour when the WWF hope a billon people worldwide will turn off their lights for one hour to show that they care about the implications of climate change. Loving Lord, who made this wonderful world for us, help and guide us to use its resources in a way that will prevent irreparable harm to its climate and resources. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
