Suggestions for Prayers

November is observed as an opportunity to be reminded and pray for Christians throughout the world, but especially in North Korea, Eritrea and Somalia, who are being persecuted for their faith. “God of grace, look upon your suffering people. In their distress hear their cry; save them from those who would harm them for remaining faithful to your Son; and from violence deliver them and grant them protection from their enemies. In Your Name we pray.”

People in the Sandringham Road Area of Wetherby: Sandringham Road, Barleyfields Lane, Northgates, Grosvenor Terrace, York place, Northgate House,

This week Churches in Wetherby pray for:  St. Joseph’s Church


Called to Prayer – God is calling his people to pray, to seek his will, his purpose and his timing for all that he wants to do in Wetherby.
