Your prayers for them would be appreciated.
On Monday 16 March, Britain began the process of quarantine as the Prime Minister urged Britons to maintain only essential contact with others, in order to save as many lives as possible in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
These are unusual times but while events, gatherings and many normal activities are cancelled, our mission to ensure God’s love can be encountered by everyone everywhere, isn’t.
Lots of us will find the adjustment inconvenient, but there are many people whose lives are significantly affected by vulnerability, anxiety, poverty and isolation among other areas of need. As Church Army, we exist to draw alongside the broken, the hurting and struggling to bring a message of hope both in words and actions. As we look at how we do this in the midst of coronavirus, we still remain expectant that God is at work and will continue to work while the country enters an uneasy period of lock-down.
Now more than ever we need your prayerful support so that we can continue to have an impact on people’s lives. Prayer is powerful, so will you help us through this next season by praying with us for the following:
Please pray for…
- Residents and staff at our residential home; Ty Bronna in Cardiff, a home for vulnerable young people who are homeless.
- at our hostels and projects; The Marylebone Project, the Amber Project and centres of mission as they support their communities and service users; that they will be equipped and able to provide the help that individuals and communities need.
- Retired evangelists, many of whom are above 70 years of age and now in self-isolation; that they will be able to cope and receive the support and supplies that they need for daily living.
- The homeless women who are using our hostel and drop-in service at The Marylebone Project.
Thank you for standing with us and supporting us. Please know that we are praying for you also, that God’s peace will transcend the uncertainty caused by coronavirus during this time.
- Communities where we are working that can no longer gather together; that we can find new ways to support those individuals and groups.
