Prayer Diary

November

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love of

self-discipline. 2 Tim 1:7

 

Lord, when I’m tempted to give up and turn away just let me see you on the road ahead of me. (Eddie Askew)

Thank the Lord for and continue to pray for

Caroline, Rachael and Ben that the Lord will continue to uphold them as they support Mark and receive all help they require as well

 

Duncan who continues to quietly work hard on our behalf in so many different ways which is much appreciated

 

Zoom services and services in church which enable us to worship God together and for sermons which enlighten us

Pray for

 

Those who mourn for those who have died that the Lord will comfort them and that people will be enabled to visit those who are nearing the end of their lives

 

Those who go the extra mile to care for friends and family

 

The many people who have lost their jobs recently and for those worried about losing their jobs just before Christmas

 

The Government, that they will be guided by the Lord as they continue to make vital decisions on our behalf

 

Agreement between the Government and the devolved Administrations so they can work together and not cause confusion

The Veterans who may be disappointed in being unable to march in Whitehall for Remembrance Day and for us all to acknowledge the sacrifice of many by clapping on our doorsteps

 

Our Missionary partners that the Lord will continue to lead them at this difficult time wherever in the world they are working for the Lord. May they know the Lord’s leading each and every day

 

Our Home groups who are doing their best to continue with the help of Zoom and especially for the leaders who make it happen

 

Mark as he continues to teach and share on Monday mornings with “Madeley’s Meat”

 

The Queen and all the Royal family

 

Social media, which seems to sometimes spread untrue or exaggerated “news” which can cause fear and alarm, especially for the vulnerable

Ourselves that we might trust God more and realise that those we meet may have different opinions but are still made in the image of God

The Advent story
of hope and mystery,
anticipation,
preparation,
a kingdom
of this world and the next,
and a king
appearing when we least expect.
Heaven touching earth,
the footsteps of the divine
walking dusty roads
as once they did in Eden,
and a people,
searching for a Saviour,
and walking past
the stable.
Open eyes and hearts,
that this might be
an Advent of hope to the world..
