Prayer themes for April
As a church family we come together to pray, wherever we are, for ourselves, our town, our nation and our world as we face the threat of the coronavirus. Protect those who are especially vulnerable and be present with any who feel alone.
May Christians here and worldwide this Easter, whatever their circumstances, remember Jesus’s death for each one of us and join in celebrating the hope given by His glorious resurrection. Amen
