Week Four

Pray for the development of partnership work there, on social action projects. Pray for the Wellbeing Cafe, and for those whom this cafe supports, who have mental health issues. As Bishop Guli walks through the town, pray with her and for those whom she encounters, and for people on those streets who struggle with life. Pray for work with autistic children and the after school club. Some of the planned visits may not go ahead where volunteers are self-isolating or sessions have to be cancelled but please pray for the people served by these projects anyway.
