Prayer Diary

Prayer for the Week: 

Dear Lord, Like clay in the hand of a potter, so we are to you, O Lord! You take the imperfect and make from it something new, mould us into the image of the people you would have us be. In your hands we are restored, perfected Lord, by you.  In your hands we are given new life, made useful Lord, for you. Amen.

HEBA:        Bewdley Baptist Church        Simon Harry          Denise Dobie (Minister in Training)
