Prayer for Friday 16 May 2014

Today from our church family we pray for Harriet Jones.

As Christian Aid Week draws to a close, we pray for everyone involved in collecting envelopes this weekend. We give thanks for the generosity of everyone who has given time and money this week and throughout the year to help those in great need. May the money we raise be distributed fairly and invested wisely, empowering communities across the globe to improve their own conditions, bringing security and prosperity, and enabling them to live full and fruitful lives.

“Lord Jesus, for journeys home; for determined steps to peace; for hope overcoming fear; for kindness against violence; for goodness and mercy. Even through the horrors of war; for the breaking of bread and for prayers; for sharing what we have; for all these things; give us glad and generous hearts. Amen.” (Christian Aid resources) Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
