Prayer Requests – 1st July 2012

Things for you to pray for this week …

  •  in the increasing busyness of life that we would give due priority to the responsibility we have for one another as a church family and that in our gathering together each Sunday we would seek first to glorify God as we hear and respond to his word
  • give thanks for a positive meeting to consider Fusion and Omega+ last Friday. Pray for the leaders working to provide safe enjoyable meetings which include interesting thinking times and clear Christian teaching. Pray for the provision of extra facilitators to cover practical duties allowing leaders to work more directly with the members
  • our village life to be safe and inclusive. Pray for those who are working to promote community relationships following the successful events of the Jubilee Weekend
  • Give thanks for an encouraging St Albans Diocesan Conference. There was a sense of united purpose with churches aiming to live God’s love and share the gospel

  • national leaders, politicians and diplomats in their efforts to negotiate peace. Pray for  Sudan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Syria, Nigeria
