Roads to God
At St Laurence Church we regularly pray for our local community. This includes our Roads to God mission, through which we pray especially for the people living and working in a few particular roads each month, covering the whole village over the course of a year. The list of roads for which we are praying is included in the Downton Parish News magazine, and also on the church website.
Requests for particular prayers can be made:
by telephoning Reverend Frank Gimson on 01725 510326 or
Any such requests will be kept confidential.
You can request prayers at any time – not just when
your road is on the monthly list.
In our cycle of prayer for our community, during August 2021 we will be
offering prayers for all living or working in
Gravel Close, Greenacres and Wheelwright Mews,
Saxonhurst and Wick Lane
Roads to God Prayer Group
The Roads to God Prayer Group usually meets on a monthly basis in St Laurence Church.
Under the present circumstances we are unable to do this. However, we are asking members of the prayer group and the wider congregation to set aside a time of prayer for both the particular roads in our prayer cycle and indeed the whole village at 10.30am on the third Wednesday of the month.
Roads to God Prayer
Thomas said to Jesus, 'Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?'
Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'
Let us pray -
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Through the prayer and loving service of your Church,
may we and all in this community draw closer to you,
and so find Roads toGod in this place.
We ask this in your name and for your sake.
