Our prayer for the week
All your children will be taught by the LORD, and great will be their peace. Isaiah 54:13
As families settle into the school holidays, and routine is disrupted, we pray for all the young people and their families, for peace and harmony, for fun and laughter, for rest and the freedom to exercise. We pray for all families affected by no longer having free meals each day, and for the food banks and Food Pantry, that they may be able to serve and befriend all who are struggling.
We pray for the travel and leisure industries, at home and abroad, as they struggle to get back on their feet, hampered by changing regulations and increased charges. We pray for peace and calm at airports and the like, with good will and kindness from all.
We pray about the beach and pinewoods, that the people that come to enjoy them will be sensible, stay safe, and respect the homes of those that live nearby. We pray for the National Trust rangers and volunteers, and give thanks for all who give up their time to keep the beach clean.
