Prayer Group Report
We prayed for those people throughout the world struggling because of national disasters.
We remembered those people in the Caribbean and South America who have lost everything n the dreadful hurricanes which have ripped through the area. We thought of those who were homeless and lost everything they possessed.
We thought about the people in Mexico City where the earthquake has caused so much loss of life and destruction. We thought also of people affected by mud slides and flooding in Bangladesh.
We prayed for those affected by war or political turmoil, in different parts of the world. We remembered the people of Myanmar who have fled for their lives and are now trapped in Refugee camps, in difficult conditions. We remembered the many refugees form the wars in the Middle East. We gave thanks for the peace and security that we know.
