Prayer for our Church and Community
Pray for Sunday services (whether in-person or online), especially “Reconnect Sunday” this week – for many folks to be drawn back to worship together, for the praising of God’s Name, the preaching of His Word, and for lives to be transformed by the Gospel.
Pray for our autumn “Love Your Church” series of services and midweek gatherings, that the LORD would use them to revitalise our church life and help people to be whole-life disciples of Jesus together in community.
Pray for our ministry team, elders and organisation leaders as they consider how best to open up aware of the current need to be ‘covid-safe’. Pray for increasing connections with our children, young people, families, senior members, and community.
Pray for our senior members in particular who have been isolated for so long, many of whom feel cautious about being out and about. Pray they would know the LORD’s friendship, peace and protection.
Pray for those who have been affected by covid in terms of their health, their mental well-being, their relationships, or their workplaces. Pray for healing and wholeness in Christ.
Pray for schools, colleges and universities starting back this month, for pupils and students, teachers/lecturers and support staff working under challenging conditions. Pray for Christians to be salt and light in education.
