Suggestions for Prayer
As the Apostles waited expectantly for the promised coming of the Holy Spirit, much of their time was given to prayer. This week, we are challenged to give more time to prayers, especially for those whom we know, but are yet to discover the love of Jesus and respond by seeking to follow in His footsteps and live by His teaching.
Pray too for people and businesses in Wetherby.
Wetherby churches are asked to pray for greater respect for the Countryside and our environment.
