Prayer requests 

We would love to pray for you if you have any specific prayer requests. Please contact Jeff or Liz

Let us pray for God's wisdom for our government and councillors, his strength and health for our health care professionals, for healing and mercy on those who are unwell, for a breakthrough for our scientists, for protection on those serving in shops, working on farms and getting food to our doors. And let us pray for courage for ourselves, comfort for those who are frightened and lonely, and a willingness to think of others at this time. In Jesus' name.
Amen

God does not want us to be afraid, but to know that he loves us, and is with us whatever happens. You might find this verse from the Bible helpful: Deuteronomy 33:27 'The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.'

With our love and prayers, Liz and Jeff
