St Mary’s

Give thanks for our links with Walberton and Binsted CE primary school and pray for the pancake party later this month.

Our Community

This month we pray for the residents of Prime Close and Henty Close.
Pray for ongoing deliberations about the future route of the A27.
Pray for those who are ill that they would know God’s peace and comfort and pray for family members and those who care for them.

Our Nation

Pray for those facing uncertainty about their future as we leave the European Union. Pray for the government’s continued negotiations for a future trade deal and cooperation on security.
Pray for wisdom for the Prime Minister and government in their words and actions regarding Iran.
Pray for greater access to mental health support services for those in need, particularly young people. 

The World

This month we pray for Africa:
Give thanks for our links with Living Waters in Tanzania; pray for more sponsors to come forward for secondary school pupils and for children at the Living Waters Children’s Home.
Pray for talks aimed at ending the Civil War in Libya and for a lasting ceasefire.
Pray for communities and families who have been bereaved and suffered kidnappings at the hands of militants. Pray for those who minister to them and seek to bring God’s love and hope.

The Church

Following calls for a "decade of reconnection", pray for the role of the church in fostering the rebuilding of connections between neighbours and communities.
As we enter the season of Lent at the end of this month let us recommit ourselves to God, ‘Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me’, Psalm 51:10.
