They are concerned that the UK government has failed to live up to commitments made at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference in 2010. Read the full article on external website
Grant to us, Lord, the peace of those who have learnt to
serve you, the joy of those who are glad to obey you and the
delight of those who rejoice in your praise; through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
Aidan of Lindisfarne (d. 651)
O God, who journeyed with Abraham,
laughed with Sara,
waited with Simeon,
rejoiced with Anna,
we thank you
for those who lives are lived in your presence
and for those who come to you later.
We ask your blessing on
those who work with older people
in church and in the community,
to maintain faith and bring fresh insights.
We pray for active older people
that, through Spirit filled grace,
they may continue to follow your call.
We pray for those whose lives move towards its
that they may know your peace and behold your
in Jesus' name. Amen.
Adrian Burdon, superintendent minister, South Fylde
