Best wishes for a successful Eltham Praying 24/7

David Gold, the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Eltham has offered his best wishes to the organisers and participants in Eltham Praying 24/7, a week-long programme of continuous prayers involving eight churches in Eltham.


 David, pictured right, will attend the opening service at 11am on 11 September at St Mary’s Community Centre in the High Street, and also hopes to attend at least one other event during the week.   He asked Conservative supporters to take the opportunity for quiet reflection and to ask for prayers for themselves, their families and their neighbours.

He said, “This is an opportunity to take a few minutes out of the rat race and give thought to how fortunate we are and to pray for others.   It is a chance to stop and focus on the positive and to give thanks for whatever we do have, and to consider how we might make small changes to our lives for the benefit of others.   It is a wonderful initiative and I hope as many shoppers as possible will use the prayer points in Marks & Spencer, the Electriq Cafe and the Cancer Research UK shop if they are pressed for time.”
