Prayer Diary - 19th November 2017
The Collect for today - Twenty third Sunday after Trinity:
Lord God, our refuge and strength, the author of all godliness, hear the devout prayers of your church and grant that what we ask for in faith we may surely obtain, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Please pray for...
the sick and the bereaved:
our mission partners: Jonny & Erica Greaves (The Oakes, Sheffield) and Mags Southern (SAMS in Paraguay).
those serving in the Armed Forces:
our local schools:
- Sir Leslie Martin & Hartford Old School House Nurseries, and other schools which members of the church are involved in.
- Hartford Church of England High School.
- For parliament to reject proposals for new legislation that will make many elements of sex education compulsory for all pupils. Many of the topics to be covered are contrary to the Word of God.
