The Collect for today

Grant, O Lord, we beseech you,

that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by your governance,

that your Church may joyfully serve you in all godly quietness;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

In our own parish we pray for those who live in Percy Park and Percy Park Road.

We pray for those who are unwell; Callum, Clare Brown, Thelma, Cath Goode, Valery Morley, Jill Johnson, Margaret Gibson, Isobel, and Ian Davis.
