PLEASE PRAY for our Nation to turn back to God. During such an uncertain time, pray that we would not try to succeed of our own accord, but recognise that it is through God’s strength and wisdom that the outcome is determined. As our Good News reading says this week, He longs to gather His children, like a hen gathers her chicks under her wing. Pray that our Government would recognise that, and come to Him in prayer.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 13:31-end ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’.
