Dear Friends,

We have prepared this prayer diary as a tool to guide us through the month, highlighting local and relevant topics for prayer. We hope that you will find these prayer themes useful and that, as we pray, we will feel connected to one another in Jesus’ name.

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in trouble and constant in prayer.” Romans 12v12
