The topic for July is for people who live in fear, confusion and distress… Almighty God, who raised our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and gave him glory, that we might have hope: have mercy on all in despair, for whom life has lost its meaning and for whom hope has become extinct. Come to them in pity and power to renew their faith; and enable them to honour you by believing you can make all things new, through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Llewellyn Cumings)
