Prayers for Ipswich

This last week, in the Uk, has seen a rather grusome story hit the headlines. The murder of 5 prostitutes in the Ipswich area has shocked and appaled most people. For once the shock was not that there are prostitutes but that someone was out killing. Beneath is a prayer for the situation that was posted on the Methodist Church website and worth reproducing
"My eyes will flow unceasingly, without relief, until the Lord looks down from the heaven and sees. What I see brings grief to my soul because of all the women of my city" (Lamentations 3:49-51) LORD, we pray for the families of all the young women who have been murdered in Ipswich.. We pray that you would hold them in the palm of your hand. We pray that they would know your comfort in the midst of their agony and grief. LORD, we pray for the streets of Ipswich that your peace will surround the women there. We pray for the community that they would know your comfort in the midst of this. " Written by the National Christian Alliance on Prostitution
Take Care Y'All John
