1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)
‘Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing’.

Gracious God, as we clapped last night and showed our love and respect for Captain Sir Tom Moore, we give thanks this morning for all the unsung heroes of this pandemic. For those who have tirelessly helped others, for all front-line workers, for those who have raised funds for the NHS and other charities, for those who have inspired us and picked us up when we’ve been down and shone as beacons in our communities, we give our grateful thanks. May the values that Jesus taught us, the desire to treat others with compassion and empathy, continue to bring light, hope and positivity into our world.
On this the 4th day of Children’s Mental Health Week, we continue to pray and ask for Your blessing upon all our children and their families. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
