Prayer A-Z during the coronavirus pandemic

A guest contribution to revdanbalsdon.com from Mel Leech, member at Felpham Methodist Church, West Sussex.

After the cancellation of the London Marathon people began doing 26 things…26 circuits of their gardens, 26 press ups… Mel was thinking that the alphabet has 26 letters and came up with 26 things that we could pray for or give thanks for during lock-down. (In fact Mel ended up with more than 26!)
