Prayer Cycle for August

No 104 August 2021

This month our special focus is on the holiday season.

Please pray and give thanks:

  • For the holiday season, that it will be a real time of rest and refreshment for all.
  • For the excitement and anticipation of planning, for freedom from routine and for new experiences and opportunities.
  • For our wonderful world that wherever we go we are surrounded by your creation and the rich variety in nature.

Please remember:

  • Those who for whatever reason are unable to have a holiday.

In the Deanery, please pray for:

  • Winnersh and Bearwood in an interregnum.
  • Crowthorne as the Parish moves into an interregnum at the beginning of September.
  • Lisa Cornwell and her husband Mike as Lisa takes up a tutoring post in the Guildford Diocese.
  • Finchampstead and California as Leonard Onugha and his family settle into the Parish and community.
  • Judi Hattaway mourning the death of her husband Mick and for Mick may he rest in peace.

In the wider community please pray:

  • For the continuing role out of the Corona virus vaccine, for those involved in administering it and for the re-assurance it gives us.
  • The relaxation of restrictions that we will all continue to take the necessary measures to keep ourselves and others safe.

A Blessing for the holidays

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Traditional Celtic Blessing
