We come to God for the whole of the month of October in an attitude of thanksgiving. As we give thanks for all that God gives and his faithful, loving generous heart, we make the commitment to not take this care for granted and to always remember those who live day by day without enough. We especially give thanks for generous amazing grace, revealed through Jesus and the equipping of his Holy Spirit to enable our discipleship. In Jesus’ name Amen.
Weekly Prayer Focus:
For those weighed down by ill health, bring wholeness to body, mind and spirit. For those weighed down by worry, bring wisdom, peace and reassurance. For those weighed down by fear, bring freedom, release and liberation .For those weighed down by sadness, bring comfort, strength and joy. For all whose hearts are troubled at the start of this new day, be the voice that they hear,the warmth that they feel, the wisdom they seek, the strength they require, and the one in whose arms they rest. Thank you Lord for always being along side each one of us. Amen

RAISING FUNDS FOR KATY DAWSON
Katy is a 36 year old and a mother of a 4 year old little girl and a 4 month old baby. Katy was diagnosed with triple negative type breast cancer and the pioneering new treatment which Katy is now having in Germany is extremely costly. Katy has recently found out that she will need £150,000 for the treatment as she will need to have it over a longer period to give her any chance. The church fund to help Katy raise the funds is up and running. Please let Sandra have your donation marking it “Katy”. Many thanks, Clive Rushton
