Prayer Thought: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. The scriptures reveal that God always has a special care for those who are particularly vulnerable: the bewildered stranger, the lonely widow or orphan, the sick and handicapped. Jesus’ rule is clear - treat others as we would treat ourselves. This is the crux of the Gospel. God bless.
