PLEASE PRAY for all those who are caught up in war, or threats of war. We pray for the those who are grieving the loss of loved ones – those crushed in crowds – those assassinated – those bombed doing their job – those who have died through starvation and disease. Please pray for tolerance and a willingness to not win-over others through force but to always pursue peace. And please pray for Christian Unity, that we acknowledge our shared beliefs and work together to show the love of Jesus through Unusual Kindness to others.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Matthew 3: 13-17 – As Jesus was baptised, the Father declared him his son, fulfilling the prophecies that God would find a way of saving people from their sins.
