Christian Aid result for Little Paxton Village

Just heard that the total raised  this year in Little Paxton Village for Christian Aid was £1,137.00- just £20.00 short on last years total.

Considering a lot of people are feeling the pinch in this time of recession, I think this is very generous indeed. Thanks go to the organiser Jean and to everyone who delivered and collected envelopes -a task which can be very time consuming.

The following prayers are from the Christian Aid web-site:

Creator God,
You loved the world into life.
Forgive us when our dreams of the future
are shaped by anything other than glimpses of a kingdom
of justice, peace and an end to poverty.

Incarnate God,
you taught us to speak out for what is right.
Make us content with nothing less than a world
that is transformed into the shape of love,
where poverty shall be no more.

Breath of God,
let there be abundant life.
Inspire us with the vision of poverty over,
and give us the faith, courage and will to make it happen.
