There is something about cleaning: hoovering, washing dishes, changing bedsheets. Or we might be cleaning church. It may not be very glamorous but it is an essential part of keeping ourselves and others healthy. We can all recognise that an inner winter has set in when someone chooses to live in squalid conditions. The bible talks a lot about cleanliness- that old saying “cleanliness is next to Godliness- is probably an overstatement!! But as we clean, we can also pray, that our hearts as well as our homes might be clean.
Pray for cleaners
Pray for people who clean hospitals, care homes, hotel rooms, commercial kitchens, public toilets and railway platforms. For roadsweepers, refuse collectors- everyone who works hard to keep our communities clean.
