    1. Sorry about that, b. The link is to an article describing the cathedral's use of people's prayer petitions. Here's an excerpt: Petitions about health and family disputes appear to have replaced stressed mortgages, failing businesses and money worries which dominated the thousands of petitions submitted to the petitions and thanksgiving boxes at the Cathedral in the last few years.

  5. Everyone has their worries and perhaps writing them in the book gives some relief.

  6. I like the idea, it helps to understand the issues and concerns of the people.

  7. Sadly, some have given up. Businesses went under, some reinvented themselves, some are on assistance. Family and health are universal issues. There is an ebb and flow in time. Faith offers hope, but not everyone asks for prayers or intercession. Faith.
