This week, in our groups, meetings and homes, pray for Christian Aid’s work with six long term partners in Iraq. Pray that those who are most vulnerable – displaced people, refugees and host communities – would be strengthened to better cope with crises and live peaceful lives together.
Pray for support for our partner REACH, who have been responding to the Iraq and Syria refugee crises. Give thanks for the psychosocial support provided through REACH for children such as Lava and Hammoudi, who were refugees from Syria to Iraq in 2013. Pray that wherever they are now, they would be safe and that their lives are flourishing. [From the Christian Aid Prayer Diary.]

Pray also for Sue Hitchinson’s pastoral group: Peter and Pam Clewlow; Linda, Rachel and Lucy Gibbs; Cynthia Kelly; Peter, Ros, Elizabeth and Sarah Mason; Mary McLean; Ken and Rose Mary Shirley; Alan and Maureen Sumner; Sue Charlesworth; Graham, Andrea and James Townsend; Lis, Joseph, Nathaniel and Nicholas Tresise. Amen.
