Further prayers for James Mackay

Further prayers are requested for James Mackay, who was fitted for a pacemaker this afternoon. Please pray also for a quick recover for James.

Also please keep William in your prayers at this time as well.

O Lord, your compassions never fail and your mercies are
new every morning: We give you thanks for giving our
brother James both relief from pain and hope of health
renewed.  Continue in him, we pray, the good work you have
begun; that he, daily increasing in bodily strength, and
rejoicing in your goodness, may so order his life and conduct
that he may always think and do those things that please
you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
