Weekly prayer for missions:  This week we pray for the work of the Bible Society in Malawi.  From Joseph Khondowe, who has worked on the children’s Bible distribution project for three years.   “Please pray for our Sunday school teachers; pray that they will have time to study the Bible and prepare lessons for the children.  Pray for pastors, that they will start to understand the importance of children in their churches. Pray the pastors will support the teachers.”

In the ParishWe pray for Rev. Robin Grayson, Rev. Shola Aoko, Rev. Sue Lepp and all other local clergy/ministers/pastors of every church in Langley, as they labour in God’s kingdom. Please pray that God will bless them with physical health, emotional strength, wisdom, and spiritual insight as they seek to establish faith and work in unity.
