Suggestions for Prayer
Remembrance Sunday when we think about, be grateful and pray for those who have died in the service of their country in two world wars and many conflicts since. Pray that all who mourn at this time, will be comforted and strengthened and for all who were wounded and their lives changed, that they may be encouraged and receive all necessary help.
