Those who mourn:
The family and friends of Brian Enstone.
Events in the life of Christ Church:
We pray for all those who work so hard as volunteers within the life of our Church family, and we pray for wisdom for those who lead us, especially our Churchwardens (Elaine & Jean) as we respond to the changing challenges presented by Covid 19.
We pray for the staff and pupils at Queensgate school as plans are made concerning the future educational needs of children in and around Woodford. And also, for those involved in the development of a new primary school in Woodford.
The events in our country and world:
We pray for wisdom for the leaders of the world, especially in the light of the awful events we see unfolding in Afghanistan. And we remember the people of that very troubled country, praying for peace, good government and a better future.
We remember too, those making difficult decisions in relation to the on-going challenge of Covid 19 and the forthcoming Climate Change Summit. And we continue to pray for those working so hard in the NHS and in Care Homes – thanking God both for them, and for the ‘roll out’ of the vaccines.
