Prayer

''For I know the plans I have for you”  declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11

Lord, we pray for our country at this time when the way ahead is so unclear.  Thank you that you never change, and that you have good plans for your people.  May we and our leaders seek your guidance and maintain good relationships in our local, national and international communities.   In Jesus’ name we ask it.  Amen.
