Weekly Prayer:

Gracious God, there are times when my ability to trust seems absent. My heart longs for truth and i even find within me a kernel of desire to believe, but my mind seems unable to grasp the truth and belief that I seek. Let your sure and true presence wash over me, shedding shafts of light where only darkness resides, and in those shafts of light may I see the outline of your face. I ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.

Christian Aid:

The coronavirus crisis continues to grow across the world. But in the global South the pandemic could push half a billion more people into poverty. The Central African Republic has just 3 ventilators for almost 5 million people. Malawi has only a quarter of the nurses needed to provide healthcare for all its citizens.  Fundraising at the moment is difficult.   We can’t hold major events BUT we have come up with a small-scale idea: We hope that some of you would invite a few friends for coffee, tea or something stronger, and ask them for a donation to Christian Aid. Hosts could then pass the money on through the JustGiving link or in an envelope to 9 Thorburn Road. 

Many thanks, Patricia.
