Prayer Requests – 12th July 2015

To prompt your prayers this week…

 

  • As pupils and students break for the summer, pray for good relationships at home and preparations for what lies ahead in the autumn following results and job applications. Especially pray for Christians to deepen their trust in God and their commitment to follow him whatever the future may hold

 

  • As the local Borough seek to consult widely on the way forward for local schools and search for appropriate funding, pray that the long term interests of children would be the priority and that schools such as our lower school, with a distinctive Christian character, would be able to flourish whatever structures may emerge. Pray for school heads in their demanding roles

 

  • Individuals who are overwhelmed by worry, stress, heartbreak, despair. Pray for healing of mind and body, and for renewal of spirit. Pray for them to receive clear signs of love and that God would renew their hope, so that the peace of God which passes understanding would guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

 

  • Preparations for Summer Ventures, the leaders and the young people who will attend. Pray for genuine growth in Christian understanding

 

  • As many remember the Srebrenica genocide 20 years ago, pray that bitterness and sorrow would not lead to deeper hatred but a hunger for respectful peaceful relations between nations. Pray for the bereaved following the attack at Sousse in Tunisia. Pray for Christians who have the opportunity to witness and point to Jesus
