Suggestions for Prayers

It is estimated that 21 million men, women and children worldwide are trafficked every year so we pray that those responsible will be brought to justice and that those organisations, and individuals, working to rescue and restore the victims of such evils will be successful. Pray too for the police and the relevant organisations that they may recognise those at risk and find ways of helping them.

Pray for People in the Parsons Green Area of Wetherby:  Parsons Green, Durrant Close, Highcliffe, Highcliffe Court, Bridgefoot, Wetherby Silver Band & Bandstand, Weir reservation Trust & Wilderness Car Park, Wetherby in Bloom
