Prayer Diary – October/November 2018

 

This prayer diary is produced to encourage us, as a congregation, to join together in daily prayer. Please contact the editor, the minister or the church office if you wish to have any topics included.  The Worship Group would appreciate any offers of help to compile the prayer diary.

Tuesdays

Remember those for whom providing a meal for their family is a daily struggle, particularly those in our own community who cannot afford nourishing food for their children.
