Prayer for Tuesday 3rd June 2014

Today, from our church family we pray for Judith Matthews 

Last month saw the annual Christian Aid Street collection during Christian Aid week.  Loving Lord, thank you for all the willing volunteers who gave up their time to take out and collect the Christian Aid envelopes. This collection provides the major part of Christian Aid’s annual income, so it is the main financial support for their vital aid work.  We pray that the general public has been generous in its response and that when the whole amount collected is counted and publicised, it will exceed last year’s total.

“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)
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
