Prayer Requests – 9th June 2013

Things for you to pray for this week …

 

  • Please take time to prayerfully consider your giving as part of your worship and return the form to Brian Simister as soon as possible (the information is strictly confidential)
  • everyone preparing for tests, exams or assessments whether at school or work. For confidence to entrust themselves to God for the future and to let their ambitions be shaped by his call to service rather than wealth, status or power
  • for carers to have patience and stamina. For those who are anxious about financial provision for their caring needs and for the agencies who offer support to do so with compassion
  • couples preparing for marriage
  • all women preparing to give birth that they will receive the support they need during labour and delivery. Pray for midwives, medical workers and fathers. Pray for a vivid awareness of God’s presence and humble dependence on him caring for the newborn.
  • that the desire of national leaders to appear strong would lead them to work for the benefit of their citizens. Give thanks for the conversation developing with the normally closed country of North Korea and pray for the gospel to reach them. Pray also for Turkey, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Burma and the work of The Messengers in access restricted countries
  • for those like Nickie Carter going on short term mission projects and Bethany  White as she prepares to go to Japan, with OMF and considers the possibility of long term mission work
  • leaders and helpers doing all the  work  required to conduct a safe and worthwhile Summer Venture. For all who will attend to be receptive to God for genuine spiritual growth
