"A Prayer ‘Posada’: Round the World in Nine Days: We are looking for nine families to take part in a Prayer 'Posada' as part of 'Thy Kingdom Come'.A ‘posada’ box containing a globe/world map, paper and felt tip pens will travel around nine families who will be invited to choose a country to pray for, draw the country’s flag and write the word for ‘hello’ on the back in the language of their chosen country. They will then pray for this country, its leaders and the people who live there, before placing the flag back in the box and passing it to the next family. It will set off today from the Family Service at 11am. Let’s join together in praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ across the globe!" Sarah Sharp 07500 262306
