Prayer Topics for the week commencing 14th March 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
Merciful Lord,
you know our struggle to serve you:

and overshadows our hearts,
come to our aid
and turn us back to you again;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
