Prayer changes things

Pray for relief from hunger and suffering for those in Afghanistan and Ukraine. Listen to the news and pray about what you hear asking God to intervene. 

Remember the plight of the refugees displaced from troubled nations in the world such as Afghanistan and more recently Ukraine. May they find a welcome, hope and stability without delay in new countries.

Pray for all NHS staff who are providing essential services and healthcare to all who are in hospital or care homes. Pray for the wellbeing of those in care homes to be boosted through regular visits by relatives. 

Pray for those awaiting treatment for other conditions which was postponed during the Covid epidemic. 

Pray that provision will be made for all who are in need through the charities working around the country. 

The Bible says: "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5 verse 7

Church of England freephone message

There is a freephone service called "Daily Hope" which is provided by the Church of England.

 Calls are free and particularly useful to people who may not have access   to the internet.

 This could be a way to bless elderly relatives and friends who can listen   on speaker phone.    

                                                                                                         Please try it yourself so you can explain to others how the options work. There are options to listen to music, talks and prayers so have a pen and paper to jot them down. Happy listening at any time of day or night. There is one to help you get to sleep!
