Lammas Day at the beginning of August marks the offering of the first fruits of harvest, and prompts prayer for farmers and all who work the land, and also for those in our world and in our own society most impacted by food shortages and high prices as a result of the war in Ukraine and other factors.

August is kept as National Road Victim Month. Pray for safety on our roads, for the families and friends of those who have been victims of fatal accidents, and for those who offer counselling and support. Playday, on Wednesday 3rd, aims to promote the value of play within a healthy childhood. This year’s theme highlights that play as being for everyone, and that play is the right of every child and young person.Pray for those children denied easy access to play opportunities. Pray too for play in our churches - in children’s corners and crèches, in holiday clubs and Messy Church, and within fetes and summer festivals. Cycle to Work Day on August 4th encourages people to have a go, even if they haven’t cycled in years. In rural situations it may not be an option, but it highlights the need to use less fossil fuel and to keep fit. Pray though for the safety of cyclists on our roads, and for good and effective cycle proficiency training for young people.

The Feast of the Transfiguration, on Saturday, is told in each of the first three Gospels: Peter, James and John are granted a glimpse of Jesus in glory, before the events that lead to his crucifixion. Pray we may be motivated in mission and service by an awareness that the cross is the place of glory, and service and sacrifice are where true greatness is to be found.
