Lent prayer 2018 - Ash Wednesday (14 February)

Feb

Today's prayer activity: 

Think, or talk about, the people, situations and issues that you care about – think about your friends, family, neighbours, community, country, leaders and other nations. Consider individuals, groups or nations who are on your heart and mind because they are living in poverty, or facing grief or suffering, and especially think about those who don’t know about, or haven’t yet experienced, God’s love for them.
