Prayer Requests – 29th November 2015

To prompt your prayers this week…

Pray for their humility and that God would mercifully guide them to his wisdom and to actions that will lead to the reduction of suffering and the establishing of constructive government with justice for all groups

  • Pray for all new mothers and those preparing for a birth

 

  • Pray for the endurance of all who are managing the daily practical challenges arising from treatment for health issues. Ask that God would help them to know how to pray and that he would give them a deep trust that they are safe in his hands
