Prayer Requests – 17th April 2016

This week please pray…  

 

  • Approaching our Annual Meeting, that we would remember clearly all that God has done for us, having confidence to trust him and actively serve his purposes as we look to the future, both as a congregation and as individuals

 

  • Heavenly Father, as we celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, receive our heartfelt thanks for all that you have given her in these ninety years and for all that she has given to her people. Continue, we pray, your loving purposes in her, and as you gather us together in celebration, unite us also in love and service to one another; through Jesus Christ our Lord

 

  • Wisdom for us as a nation considering the issues of the referendum on the EU

 

  • As the children who came to the Road Runners Holiday Club keep thinking about the meaning of the stories they heard about Jesus, pray that God would give them understanding

 

  • Christian brothers and sisters who face suffering and persecution.  All who are suffering through the effects of disaster (Japan), conflict (Syria), deprivation and oppression (refugees and migrants)

 

  • For all who are grieving

 

  • For our local schools; all the children, teachers, governors and the decision makers at all levels as we prepare for changes over the next few years
