Suggestions for Prayer
Father’s Day: provides an opportunity to pray for fathers (and grandfathers) in their role of caring, protecting and sharing with mothers the privilege of bringing up their families and others for whom they have a parental responsibility. Pray for the single-parent families as they seek to cope with the added responsibility of bringing up their children.
Thursday is World Refugee Day and we pray for the many who, because of conflict , poverty and persecution, have had to abandon their homes.
People in the Glebe Fields Area of Wetherby:   Glebe Fields Chase, Glebe Fields Close, Glebe Fields Croft, Glebe Fields Drive, Glebe Fields Garth, Glebe Fields Holt.
Churches in Wetherby are asked to pray for: Pupils and Staff of the schools in the this area.
Appeal for bibles - TWAM, the Christian charity that collect our used tools, are now also appealing for used copies of the bible which will be sent to churches in African countries and in E. Europe.  Unfortunately, because of language difficulties, the King James Version of the Bible are not being collected but, if you’ve a copy of other versions, that are no longer being read, I would appreciate hearing from you. Many thanks. Derek Taylor 01937 918534
