Prayer Requests – 24th July 2011

Things for you to pray for this week …

 

  • Stephen and Kate Carter married yesterday
  • the family and friends of Adrian Gifford-Page whose funeral was in Wheathampstead yesterday. Also for all who have been bereaved
  • Phil and Amy Chapman, Martin and Roline Hargreaves, Jo and Mark Newman preparing for the birth of children
  • CPAS summer ventures. Sparkford 1 begins today. Pray for several Baileys and Anna Sollars and Paul Slater on the leadership team 
  • Sarah, Daniel, Simon and Joy Keenan moving to Shanghai for two years. They will be facing average temperatures of 35 degrees. Pray for them all as they make such a big change and that God would teach them and help them grow
  • the people of Norway coming to terms with such violence and more than 90 deaths and all the families and communities directly affected
  • the people close to the borders of the new countries of North and South Sudan to give time for the new political arrangements to settle and to resist being drawn into violence out of fear for what is new.
  • that God would give wisdom and strength to those who are working out how to provide the best help to the millions affected by the famine in the horn of Africa.
  • the organisations such as The Christian Institute, and Care who work to support and sometimes to defend Christians living out their faith in the workplace
  • clear thinking with regard to issues raised by the phone-hacking scandal. Ask God to help us have a “sober assessment of ourselves”
  • for all on holiday (including students, pupils and teachers) to be genuinely refreshed by a change from their normal routine. Pray for those who are unemployed or whose work is a burden
