21.10.2018 in your prayers for this week ……
Pray that we would each be more like our Father God in our own lives.
Thank God that He has made us one body, each with different skills to bring and tasks to fulfil in the work of His kingdom here in Hunstanton.
Ask God to inspire Theresa May, the Cabinet, and the advisers and technocrats working behind the scenes to embark onto the track and the timing that God purposes for the UK’s future relations with Europe, Ireland and the wider world. May every unnecessary burden currently being carried by those responsible for the nation’s future wellbeing be replaced with workable strategies.
Continue to uphold those who are going through particularly difficult times. Remember especially Barbara; Bec and family; Carol; Cathy F; Dorothy and Phil; Lee; Mary; Megan and family; Noel; Pam and Lance; Pearle and Peter
Please pray for an end to crises in the Middle East and around the world that are forcing people to flee their homes.
Pray the politicians and decision-makers – in the Holy Land and around the world – would work with empathy, wisdom and integrity to end 50 years of occupation in Palestine.
Please continue to pray for healing for those affected by the recent tsunami in Indonesia. Pray for good coordination and communication among the government and NGOs as the response continues and communities start to rebuild their homes. And praise God for people coming together to help each other.
Lift up families grieving the loss of loved ones who have died from Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and those struggling with separation from family members in quarantine. Pray for strength for TearFund’s partner Action Entraide’s staff as they respond to the crisis in Ituri and Beni.
Pray for our Communion service next Sunday and especially for Steve who will be preaching. Pray that the Holy Spirit will be at work in many lives.
Verse for the Week:
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
