FOR YOUR PRAYERS:

- at Eastertide, we pray for all Christians throughout the world joining to celebrate the resurrection, as Eastern and Western churches celebrate on the same day. We remember especially those who face daily the threat of danger for being Christians. We pray for our sisters and brothers in the Coptic Church in Egypt, mourning the loss of loved ones in the Palm Sunday bombings.

- for peace and stability in our troubled and broken world, praying especially for Syria following the recent reports of use of chemical weapons and escalation in air strikes by the US. For other places where there is ongoing conflict, and where tension seems to be rising: North Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, South Sudan. For those fleeing their homes and taking risky journeys to seek refuge, that they may find food, shelter and safe places to live, and that before long all may be able to live in peace and security.

- for the forthcoming general election in June & the negotiations towards Brexit, that in this time of uncertainty all concerned may work together in peace, harmony and understanding for the good of all people, regardless of their nationality and economic status.
