Thy Kingdom Come

From 25th May to 4th June we took part in the Archbishops’ call to all churches to pray for our nation, community and world. As part of this, we had prayer nets out in the church porch and people were invited to add their prayer requests to the nets. Here are some of the things that people asked us to pray for:-

  • Victims and perpetrators of terror attacks in London and Manchester
  • Police, doctors, nurses and other emergency services
  • Appreciation of the NHS. For its many burdens
  • Loved ones dying, grieving or suffering loss of faculties
  • People involved in recent road accidents
  • Worries while waiting for medical tests, procedures and results
  • Buckden and its wonderful school
  • Families lacking food or money
  • Concern for grandchildren in a world needing God’s love
  • God’s wisdom for those in positions of leadership
  • Christian revival in our nation and God’s will to be done
