Suggestions for Prayers

Pray for those who are being confirmed today, that they may always seek to be guided by the Holy Spirit in their Christian journey. That all who are already confirmed will continue to seek to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.  For those of us who will celebrate Fathers’ Day may recognise both the privilege and responsibility of being good parents.
