In September we pray for those facing the challenges of new beginnings
God, our rock and stronghold, whose love is unchanging, we pray for all those who are facing new beginnings, whatever they may be. Surround them with your peace and with the assurance of your presence at all times, uphold them with your power and let your strength be the source of their strength now and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Rev’d Sue Wilkins)
