PLEASE PRAY for people who are worrying about the future – about their health, about their work, about how they will provide for their family, about relationships. Help them to know that worry is pointless but that being open to God’s grace provides light in the darkness, hope from despair.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 12, 49-56 – It is easy to only hear or see what we want to in the world and to act in a way that serves ourselves. Help us to really hear and really see what Jesus intended and to act in a way that serves Him. No-one said it would be easy – but we believe it’s worth it.
