Save a prayer to be read out later

MEMBERS of churches in Pershore and Broadway will be taking to the streets on Ash Wednesday to offer prayers.

The Bishop of Worcester, Dr John Inge, will be among those collecting prayers on Wednesday (February 10), along with other clergy as part of their ‘Pray One for Me’ service.

They will be approaching members of the public to ask them for their prayer requests, which will be written on cards to be prayed later at Ash Wednesday services.

Bishop John, who will be joining the team in Pershore, said: “Each Ash Wednesday we head out onto the streets of the Diocese offering to pray for individuals.

“We have always found people really appreciate somebody taking the time and interest to pray for them, and any problems or concerns they’re currently experiencing.

“The start of Lent is a good time to focus on the difference prayer can make.”

Prayers will be being collected outside Pershore Abbey from 11am to 12.30pm, and from Broadway village centre at 11.15am.
