Prayer Requests – 25th August 2013

Things for you to pray for this week …

 

  • Continue to remember students following their GCSE exam results last week. Pray that they would be able to make good decisions about which subjects to pursue as they begin to set the direction of their lives for the next few years. Ask God to encourage the disappointed to persevere in trusting God’s purposes and to remind the successful to be thankful and godly in the use of their talents. Pray that those beginning studies away from home would be serious about setting spiritual priorities and finding Christian fellowship
  • Everyone affected by accidents such as the helicopter crash near the Shetlands, road traffic accidents and their aftermath and people with long-term physical or mental health problems.
    Stamina and wisdom for all who are helping the seriously ill and the bereaved in Syria after the apparent use of chemical weapons. Pray for political leaders to be motivated to find effective responses which avoid the escalation of violence
  • For building works at the lower school to progress well and reach a stage that will allow a good start to term for staff and pupils
