Some thoughts and prayers.
We pray for those people in the UK who have been affected by the extreme cold weather, particularly the homeless who rely on shelter in shop doorways and under bridges, etc. We pray for the organisations which bring comfort and food and shelter to the homeless. We pray that we will be moved to provide aid whereever it may be.
We pray for the families of the hostages of IS who have been murdered for political ends. We pray also for the countries where IS is active and for all areas where people who have beliefs that lead to violence particularly the horrible violent kind which has been reported. We pray to God that it will be put into the minds of the perpetrators of such violent crimes that the way they are expounding is wrong as it is wrong to take anyone’s life, no matter waht the reason.
