Loving God, our neighbour and ourseleves
Prayers for the month.
This month we pray for all Christian Aid workers and supporters as they collect and count the money raised during Christian Aid week. We pray also for all those who need the help of this organisation; those who have been displaced from their homes by war, those dying from hunger due to famine and those who are suffering the after effects of natural disasters. Help us to understand also the work they do to raise awareness of climate change, gender justice, tax justice and illnesses like malaria and HIV.
In our own church we pray for all those who have been appointed to serve on the PCC and as churchwardens that they may act wisely to take the church forward in faith and mission. We pray also for Lesley as she takes her final service at St Luke’s before taking a step back to spend more time with her family.
In the wider community we pray for all those who live and work in Grange Avenue
