Prayer for Thursday 1 May

Today, from our church family, we pray for John Hately.

Our charity for the month of May is ‘Upper GI Blues’. This charity was founded in 2005 to support those suffering from gastro-intestinal cancers. First launched at Sandwell hospital, the charity aims to support those suffering from and recovering from gastro-intestinal cancer and to assist their families and loved ones at this difficult time. Another aim of the charity is to raise awareness of this cancer and its symptoms. We pray, Compassionate Lord, that the money donated by St. Martin’s will help in their effort to raise the profile of this disease and to finance the support they give to sufferers and their families. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
