OUR DAILY BREAD                      June 2018


Dear Lord, we pray for all those who are sitting exams at this time of year. We pray Lord you will keep them safe as they prepare and take their exams. Help their families as they support and take care of them at this stressful time in family life. Keep them from stress and help them to be positive about their future whatever the outcome. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6: 34 Amen.
