ANN WHITAKER, THE AUTHOR of last issue’s brilliant leaflet insert, “When the nation prayed” about WWII, writes:

I have been sending copies of your August/September issue, with its inserts about prayer, to friends in different parts of Great Britain and beyond.  A letter received from a friend in Surrey some time ago, speaking of one of the days of National Prayer during World War II, said:  “I still remember the buses on that Sunday, stopping outside churches to allow people to pray.  I think the churches stayed open over night so shift workers could also pray.  After that, the first Sunday of the month became a pray for the nation Sunday.”
