Prayer requests



Dear Lord

We’re grateful for this opportunity to exercise, to challenge ourselves and support each other.

We know that many are not as fortunate as we are.

Help us to appreciate all our blessings: our health, our friendships, our comforts, our families.

Help us to be generous to everyone we meet.

Give us the strength to be diligent in our work and face our challenges with courage and integrity.

In Your name we pray
