FINAL CALL FOR CAKES FOR WEXHAM PARK HOSPITAL ICU!
The good news is that the Covid Intensive Care Unit at WPH is now closed, and Covid patients now occupying a couple of side rooms in the other ICU.
Thank you for baking for staff in this ICU – delivery of your home-bakes has been the highlight of their week.
One final despatch from Gold Hill: any cakes to be received at reception by 10am Thursday 22nd April please.
‘For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.’ (Jeremiah 29:11)
Thank you, Lord, that your plans for mankind as a whole and for each individual are good, and designed to bring fulfilment and flourishing. This week we pray that your plans will become a reality in situations and lives far and wide, and that your name will be increasingly honoured on earth as it is in heaven.
1. We pray for our world – and the many challenges and tensions which abound at this time: Lord may your plans become a reality.
2. We pray for our nation and its leaders – may your wisdom and guidance be in the minds and hearts of our leaders, and guide us as a country increasingly in your ways.
3. We pray for Christians in their daily lives – Lord may your plans become clear to each one to enable them to witness more powerfully to your love and care wherever they go
4. We pray for our church family, and others in this area – Lord would your plans for our church families and our communities unroll and each church travel where you are leading
5. We pray for local hospitals, medical staff and chaplains – that you would guide them in using their gifts and opportunities to bring honour to your name
6. We pray for local schools and colleges – that you would increasingly lead staff and students alike in your ways
7. We pray for all activities and initiatives to reach out to our Communities – Lord, would you reveal your plans for each of these to bring increasing numbers of people to know you and flourish in your love and purposes
‘Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your glory – because of your love and faithfulness to us.’
