9.12.2018 in your prayers for this week ……
Pray to God who spoke through the prophets, asking that He would inspire His church today to stand up, speak out and bring in His kingdom of justice, peace and inclusion.
Pray that in all the excitement, children will have the opportunity to reflect on the awe and wonder of this season.
Remember those who find this season difficult for any reason, whether through loneliness, bereavement, financial pressures or other challenges.
Ask our Loving God to grant you peace each day, to speak peace over your home, your work, all you love and those who love you. Pray too that He would grant you patience in times of waiting – that the world may know His gift of peace, through Jesus, Prince of Peace.
Support with prayer all who are suffering at the moment with health problems, including Bec, Kelly, Mike G., and Ron; pray that they will be surrounded by God’s love and his faithful people in times of suffering.
Please pray for members of the church family heavily involved in different forms of ministry at this busy time of year. Pray for energy, perseverance and continued love and joy in serving one another.
Millions of people in Yemen are facing starvation. Ongoing conflict is preventing aid from reaching some of those in most need. Pray that the peace talks currently taking place in Sweden will be the first steps towards securing a peaceful future for the people of Yemen
Pray for Steve leading and speaking at our Carol Service next Sunday morning. Please make this service known to all your friends and families and pray that everyone here on Sunday will hear the Holy Spirit speaking.
