Prayer morning for Walsall
Saturday 14th July 9.00 am-12.30 pm
Here at St. Martins, we feel moved to pray for the town of Walsall. We feel the current retail decline and closing of the Marks and Spencer’s in the town centre will have an adverse effect on the town centre and the people of Walsall. We want to worship God and lift up his name for Walsall. We pray for justice, healing and unity.
Walsall has many problems but also many joys. We will open St. Martins church on Saturday 14th July from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Please come and pray with us. This will be a sort of pop in prayer morning. No formal service but simply a chance to come and join others in prayer for Walsall. Come for five minutes or fifty. Just turn up, no need to book!
If you can’t come that day, then please pray for Walsall and dedicate some time during that morning to pray specifically for Walsall and its people. Then we will all be praying together.
