Cycle of Prayer: 15-21 July

Reading this week's prayers is David Reed. David says "No-one is more surprised than me to have got ordained this year. I became a Christian by accident shortly after getting married and since then Jesus has blown up my entire life. I spent the early part of my career in London working as a charity CEO, and decided to apply some of those skills to my local church in Hamworthy, which is where a call to ministry slowly developed. The formation journey since then has been amazing, and I am so excited to now be serving in the beautiful parish of Corfe Mullen, which has given us the most extraordinary welcome as a family."

I am now the newly ordained Assistant Curate of Wimborne Minster, The Wimborne Villages, Shapwick and Kingston Lacy. It has been so exciting over the last week to see where God is at work in my new parishes and I am looking forwards to joining in and making Jesus known in the time ahead.''
