Prayer Topics for the week commencing 18th July 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
Generous God,
you give us gifts and make them grow:

make it grow to your glory
and the flourishing of your kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
