Prayer is an important part of our Christian lives prayers posted here allow us at St John’s to pray with you and for you. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a prayer request either for yourselves or others. A photo of your prayer is good because it makes the prayer personal and do let us know whether you would like the prayer to remain private of whether you are happy for the prayer to be shared on this wall.
