Pray for all who suffer as the result of war and terrorist activity, and that

from inclement winter weather, especially those who need to travel.
The Church:
Pray for the many countries where Christians are persecuted. Pray also
that there may be vocations to ordained and Lay ministries, increasing
the number of local leaders.
Thank God for answers to prayer:
That, from our January Prayer diary - for increasing success in combating
the Ebola Virus; that our Church finances are solvent; and the Faculty for
the Wormingford Facilities Project has been granted.
The Lent Course will take place on Mondays from 23rd February
- pick up a leaflet in Church.
We pause, reflect and remember Wormingford’s John Robinson, who
sacrificed his life for our freedom, 70 years ago this past week.
We commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, remembering all who
suffered at the hands of tyranny, with a pledge never to allow it again.
