Prayers for Day 8 of Lent

Please pray for The Church of the Good Shepherd in the Diocese of Leeds and Ripon.  The Church Urban Fund is supporting its work with 9 local churches, each of which has congregations of African origin,  to assess the level of poverty among Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) families in local deprived areas, and to plan how to address that deprivation

Pray also for the work of the Contextual Theology Centre with a growing network of black-led Pentecostal churches in London – building on their involvement in London Citizens’ ‘Nehemiah 5 Challenge’ campaign for an interest rate cap.  Pray for Jellicoe interns who will be working in some of these congregations this summer, and for Emmanuel Gotora, a community organiser with London Citizens who is supporting us in this work.
