Cycle of Prayer: 6-12 May

Reading this weeks prayers is Gary Waldron. "I am a final-year ordinand at Sarum College, a friend, a husband to Sam, a father to two, a son, a brother, a newly professed member of the Franciscan Third Order, a production engineer, and above all, someone who tries and often fails to follow Jesus. I am always seeking ways to help others see how the fact of Jesus Christ`s life and resurrection can change them and their worldview, should they let him in."
