Suggestions for Prayers

Let us rejoice that Jesus came to earth, born of Mary in the humility of a stable, to demonstrate His great love for us. Pray for those who do not know Him, who fail to recognise the Light of His Love or continue to persecute Him.  As we worship him, offering our praise and thanksgiving, pray that we might serve Him in the suffering of the homeless, the refugee and the persecuted around the world.   

All People living in or visiting Wetherby.

This week Churches in Wetherby pray for:   God’s blessing on all who will be worshipping in the different churches during the Christmas season.
