Today's Prayer

Broadstairs: Holy Trinity

Clergy: Dominic Fenton

Pray for our coastal communities, especially in areas of deprivation; for those without work and for low-income families; for those who struggle with ill-health and a with poor sense of wellbeing; for victims of crime; for increasing numbers of homeless people on our streets and for small local businesses challenged by a stagnant economy; for all our attempts as Christians to build community and to bring hope, reconciliation harmony and peace in an increasingly anxious, fractious and divided society.
