Need some ideas of who and what to be praying for? This 7-day cycle might help


# Let's Pray
Published by Sera Rumble on Tuesday, 21 June 2022 13:07

If you, like me, need help in knowing what and who to pray for, then you might find this 7-day list really helpful. Its topics include: 'the media & the arts', 'those in the midst of famine and disaster', 'all who provide local services', 'those who work for reconciliation', 'those whose time is spent caring for others' and so much more. I love how down-to-earth, and all-encompassing it is.

It's from the Church of England's Morning Prayer, which you can find here.

Hope you find it helpful and inspiring

Every blessing, 

Sera
