Weekly News – w/c 26 August

PLEASE PRAY this prayer for Prison Hope: Heavenly Father, when Jesus came to earth, He was found with those who were suffering and despised by society; the poor, the displaced, the sick, the hungry, the thirsty and the prisoner. Help us to do the same and break the boundaries we place on our compassion; reaching those who we place beyond our horizons with Your love. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and teach us to truly love those in prison as You do.

READ THE GOOD NEWS – Luke 13, 10-17 – We are set free from the things that hurt and bind us when we can truly trust in the unconditional love
of God.
