Prayers Please

Your prayers would be valued, dear friends, as I prepare to depart for five weeks down in Hampshire and Dorset.

I shall be leading at retreat at Wisdom House in Romsey, then moving on to Green Pastures, near Poole. At Green Pastures I'll be leading Quiet Days and the regular rhythm of worship, and offering pastoral support to guests, many of whom arrive at that retreat house at a time of very real need in their life. It is challenging and demanding work, and prayer is essential to underpin it.

Both houses are experiencing financial challenges, and my work is largely voluntary, but who can put a price tag on helping those in need? Those of you who are kind enough to support me are very much enabling my ministry and since I stepped out in faith there has always 'been enough'. Thank you to you all.

Please pray for safe travelling, good health, inspiration and empathy ... and for the grace and empowering of the Holy Spirit.

And may God bless each one of you and hold you in HIs care.
