We hold in our prayers the Shetland & Scotland Methodist Districts and also Methodist Churches & all Christians throughout Europe.
We remember today those working for peace & stability in Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Israel, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Nigeria, West Africa & many other places around our world – for those who flee their homes as refugees & often lose their lives. For all those drawn into violence we pray that they will see the true path though peace. For all those & their families who have been caught up in terrorist incidents around the world. For all Christians, who are & feel persecuted around the world for their faith.
We pray for Hamish & Revd Wendy Mitchell following his recent stroke & all we know who are unwell at this time.
