Prayer Cycle and Prayer of the Month - October 2019

Do keep asking for prayers and do please let the Minister know at the beginning of a Service if you wish them to pray for someone in the Intercessions. We tend to be careful about saying names unless someone has asked.

Prayer requests and Thanksgivings please give to The Rev’d June (tel: 01747 828427), Julia (tel: 01747 829166), Theresa (tel: 01747 829188), or The Rev’d Richard (tel: 01747 830174). Perhaps you have a special "Thank-You to God " in the Bounty of this wonderful Harvest Season. It is good to remind ourselves of good things.

This month's Prayer of the Month is by Lilian Cox

We dare not ask you bless our harvest feast
Till it is spread for poorest and for least.
We dare not bring our harvest gifts to you
Unless our hungry brothers share them too.

Not only at this time Lord, every day
Those whom you love are dying while we pray.
Teach us to do with less and so to share
From our abundance, more than we can spare.

Now with this harvest plenty round us piled,
Show us the Christ in every starving child.
Speak, as you spoke of old in Galilee,
"You feed, or you refuse, not them but me!”
