Prayer Topics for the week commencing 28th February 2021

There are many things we can be praying for. The items in this post are drawn from some of the Prayer cycles we are involved with.
Pray for those known who suffer in body, mind, spirit or estate.

The Collect for this week
Almighty God,
by the prayer and discipline of Lent

and by following in his Way
come to share in his glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
