Prayer for Saturday 10th May

Today, from our church family, we pray for Rita Hooper

In our Saturday prayer for Walsall, we focus today on the many churches and religious groups who do so much to support the poor and vulnerable in our town.  We thank you, Lord, for the support the churches provide to the Glebe Centre where Hi’s ‘N Lows is now situated.  Many churches provide food, clothing and support to those who use the centre.  Many people from St. Martin’s have been, and continue to be, amazingly generous.  Thank you, Lord, for the Big Feed which is church financed and the food banks which the churches have set up.  The Sikh temple provides a free lunch every Tuesday at the Glebe and on Wednesday another Asian group provides free food.  There are so many faith groups working together to help those less well off than themselves.  Thank you, Generous Lord, for each and every person who thinks of others first.  Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
