Prayer Requests – 3rd July 2016

To Consider As You Pray This Week…

 

  • A godly perspective and careful language as our nation faces the rapidly changing political scene. Pray for a readiness to serve God’s purposes however, wherever or whenever and with whomever they may unfold. For compassionate support of those who are fearful for their job security, pension provision, the threat of racism and other anxieties

 

  • All the bereaved. Pray for all people who are reflecting on their lives because of changing circumstances or traumatic events, that God would speak to them

 

  • The people who are escaping from violent circumstances yet remain desperately vulnerable – such as citizens in towns under attack or siege over a long period. Pray for those working in refugee camps or with migrants in transit, that they would be able to remain compassionate when they themselves are also under great strain and with limited resources. Give thanks for those who are willing to work sacrificially and pray for God to open up opportunities for  change

 

  • Those suffering as a result of attacks such as those in Bangaldesh, Orlando, Turkey

 

  • Christians who are suffering to have trust in God. Christians being persecuted for their faith and witness to have courage, boldness and strength from God to persevere with joy

 

  • Please continue to pray for the extremely complex process of changing to one primary school in Riseley. There are many practical issues to be resolved. Pray for all senior school staff, the local authority and diocesan officers to find effective ways to work together for the best outcome

 

  • Students at home for the summer to know how to use time well and for all who are helping on Christian camps and ventures to grow as disciples through Christian service
