Prayer Requests

Last updated on: Thursday 12th September 2002

I and my good friends at the Chatham Corps of the Salvation Army request your prayers for the following. Please support us if you feel that you can: it is the greatest power we can access, and it achieves so much, as we at the Chatham Corps have witnessed on so many occasions.

These pages contain the following:

Where appropriate there are further details linked from the person's name –

  • Bob and Denise Barham Hall and son Nicholas: Nicholas absconded from hospital (where he was being treated for depression) in Bristol and was severely injured in a car accident.
