Greetings in Jesus!
“Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” – Psalms 124:8

Please continue to pray for God’s guidance as we move forward to build His Kingdom at St. Bede’s.
Pray for the nations :
- Please remember to pray for peace in Afghanistan. Especially remember the Christian community there and the vulnerable people who live in fear and uncertainty.
- We are privileged to live in a peaceful nation. Please pray fervently for the upcoming Federal elections in Canada.
- Remember the people affected by the earthquake in Haiti last weekend. We pray that aid will reach those affected and the Lord will comfort those who have lost their loved ones.
- We also pray for Greece as the Country faces the disaster of unprecedented wildfires outside Athens.
We see the signs of the last days as recorded in the Holy Bible. So let us be fervent in seeking God and His grace.
We are reminded that our help is in the name of our Lord, who made heaven and the earth. So let us continue to pray as we look upon Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
Please don’t hesitate to call me if you need prayer or any spiritual guidance.
Looking forward to seeing many of you at church this Sunday.
May Our Lord’s grace continue on you.
Regards and blessings
