Prayer Focus
Today’s Collect
Most merciful God, who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world: grant that by faith in him who suffered on the
cross we may triumph in the power of his victory; through Jesus Christ your
Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Mission Prayers
We pray for Malcolm and Yanet Taylor in their responsibilities with YWAM in
San Pedro, especially with the growing number of Teams building Homes of
Hope. We pray too for them in their family life with their daughter Patricia; that
in all the challenges and joys they may know the Lord’s comfort and encouragement.
Please pray for troubled parts of the world, for the hungry, those without work,
a home or suffering hardship, those with addictions and the lonely.

Anglebury Court

School Assemblies Team
Children and Schools Worker (Hilary and Will Bond)
