Let’s pray for Arnside

We know that you love us and love the world. We thank you for the many blessings that you shower upon us every day. We place all our cares and concerns before you. We especially pray for this village of Arnside: for everyone who lives and works here, and for the many visitors to this beautiful place. Be close to those who are sick, bereaved, lonely or afraid. Enable everyone to know your peace, your comfort and your love. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus who is our risen Lord. Amen.
