PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Please pray this week for all the children in our community whether they attend St. Mary’s, one of the other village churches or do not attend church at all.  We pray for their safety and wellbeing when they are at school, at a village organisation or when they are at play.  We pray that as their childhood develops they are not tempted by all the unworthy and evil distractions that seem to make up such a large part of our society.  We pray that they develop to become responsible adults and most of all we pray that they come to Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.

Amen
