Suggestions for Prayers 

Sea Sunday - For more than 160 years the Mission to Seafarers has been caring for seafarers and their families throughout the world and, being informed of this, enables us to be more aware of the great importance of their work and our dependence upon them. There are 1.5 million men and women who risk their lives ensuring that the necessities upon which we depend are available. As we remember the seafarers in our prayers, let us not forget the vital work of their chaplains.  

Pray for People in the North Barleyfields area of Wetherby:  Barleyfields, Maple Drive, Popular Avenue, Oakwood Road, Coxwold Hill, Coxwold View. 

This week Churches in Wetherby pray that: on this Sea Sunday, we remember and pray for the 1.5 million seafarers, who often work at great cost to ensure that we receive those items upon which we depend.
