Week commencing 27th May: we pray for the residents of Fairways, right on the border of the parish, and for all who live on boundaries, be they physical, mental or spiritual.  We think of those families who are ‘only just managing’, those who are brittle and fragile, and those who would like to have faith but cannot believe in God’s love. We pray too for all who work with those on the margins of society, in charities, in home and places of safety, on our streets, and with the homeless.  We pray for all who serve us in whatever capacity, in our homes, in shops and restaurants, in hospitals and  surgeries: may we always be mindful of their needs and feelings even amidst our own troubles. 

Verse for the week: 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3 vs 16-17

Prayer for the week:  
O Triune God, Your three-fold name was placed upon us when we were baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. On this day and during this season we try to be mindful of the Unity of all three persons into one, despite not fully grasping how this can be. Grant us the grace to continue in this faith until we join the hosts of Heaven that cry, ‘Holy, holy, holy’ before Your heavenly throne, You who live and rule, one God, through all eternity. Amen.
