Prayer Requests – 29th January 2017

To Prompt You This Week As You Pray …

 

  • God’s hand on global international relationships as they are affected by so many changes in leadership. Particularly pray for our Prime Minister not to be overwhelmed but to serve and speak with wisdom and a clear conscience. All in authority facing complex problems

 

  • Pray for individuals in our church family who are coping with the consequences of surgery, accidents or illness. Pray for the patience and perseverance of all their carers

 

  • Joseph: Zero to Hero – Easter Holiday Club Wed 12th and Thurs 13th April. Give thanks for the talents God has given and pray they would be used effectively as the team develop the content; that it would be faithful, engaging, safe and enjoyable. For good response to the publicity so that children will return and new contacts be made that will bear fruit

 

  • For Oak Hill Ordination Training College following the sudden death of Principal Mike Ovey who had given such clear teaching and brave leadership when defending key areas of evangelical (biblical) doctrine. Pray for Dan Strange, acting Principal

 

  • Give thanks that the Church of England has reasserted that it will hold to Biblical teaching on God’s design for marriage (one man and one woman for life). Pray for Christians to be clear equally in understanding and in displaying Christ like love to all without fear or prejudice

 

  • Students taking exams. Parents and carers not to be anxious but to pray

 

  • Those on the Growing Leaders Course that the time and thought invested would be fruitful

 

  • Pray for God’s provision of a godly churchwarden at the Annual Meeting in April. Give thanks for many who lead and assist with our groups and services as well as practical care for our building and behind the scenes planning. Pray for all who take responsibility that all may be done  “as working for the Lord” Colossians 3:23-24
