Deacon’s Bidding Prayers February 14th 2014
The deacons of our diocese bid your prayers:
For hearts full of compassion for others, ourselves, and other living things.
For harmony among all people in our nation and around the world. For healing of hearts and minds so that the perception of diversity results in appreciation rather than fear or hatred.
For people dealing with ice and snow in places that are unprepared to cope with it. For people who work outdoors in wintry weather, and for travelers.
For Californians facing severe drought conditions and shortages of water for drinking and irrigation. For people around the world suffering from extreme heat and drought.
For people in England and Wales dealing with flooding, winds, and high seas.
For those who are bullied, abused, or dismissed by others.
For peace and protection and an abiding sense of God’s love for the people of South Sudan, and especially for our sisters and brothers in our partner Diocese of Twic East.
