Pray that God may keep us cool and steady

The Hare Hatch area of Wargrave responded to the war with a call for prayer.

Hare Hatch Notes
The news from the seat of war is satisfactory. But first and foremost in this crisis comes the Duty of Prayer. We must pray for ourselves, that God may keep us cool and steady and ready to perform whatever part. He calls us to do at this time. We must pray for those we love who have left us at the call of the King and Country. We must pray for those in authority, our King, our Government, our generals, our admirals, our soldiers, and sailors. We must pray for those sick and wounded, those in sorrow, distress and anxiety. Our services on Sunday and our week-day Intercession services give us this opportunity, come and join us if you have not already done so.

On Friday, August the 28th, the members of our Sunday School had their annual Tea at the Lodge. After tea we had a united Intercession service in the Mission Church. A special collection on behalf of the families of our soldiers and sailors at the front amounted to £1. 13s. 10d.

Sunday, August the 30th, was our special day of Intercessions. We had large congregations at the morning and evening services. The offertory throughout the day being devoted to The British Red Cross Society for providing requisites for the sick and wounded amounted to £3. 9s. 6d.
