Week Commencing December 9th: we pray for the residents of Blundellsands Road East and for the welfare of young people living in flats in large houses there.   During Advent we pray for our own Christmas preparation, both for celebration of the Incarnation of Jesus and for the preparation of our hearts to receive him as our Lord and Saviour. We ask for God’s blessing on our PCC as they meet this week, giving thanks for all the work they do for our Church.  We also give thanks for all who prepare Christmas lunches for us.

Verse for the week: 35 Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” Mark 3 v. 35

Prayer for the week: Dear Lord, as we prepare to celebrate your coming among us in the form of a baby, help us among the excitement and stress of Christmas preparations, to remember to make time for you: to pray, to listen, and to help others, especially those who have little to look forward to this Adventide. Amen.
