Prayer Diary for February 2019
Matthew 22 v21 Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
1. We pray that we will put You first in all things.
2. We give thanks for our policemen and policewomen, and ask that they will always be an example for us to follow.
3. In remembering Your sacrifice for our sins, we also bring members of our families to You in prayer.
4. We give thanks for all we have and remember those who are in need.
5. We pray for all those who see no need of You, and ask that You will call them to You.
6. We think of the church in Corinth, and ask that You will guide us into Your ways, and that we may leave rituals for their own sake behind.
7. We pray for our country and ask that You will heal divisions, and that we will all work for the common good.
8. We pray too for our European neighbours, may they be willing to understand our psyche, and we theirs.
9. Help us to be open channels to receive Your word for each of us, and to be prepared to put it into action.
10. We pray for all those who are taking part in the service today.
11. We remember all those who need a home of their own, and ask that ways will be found to satisfy those needs.
12. We pray for the Healing Conference, and in particular all the speakers.
13. We pray for all the natural disasters and the people caught up in the resulting turmoil.
14. We thank You for Peace, which knows no understanding, and for Hope when all seems black.
15. We pray for all children everywhere.
16. We pray too for all teachers, may they realise what an important part they play.

THE PRAYER CORNER - Many thanks to Robin and Pam for setting up the Prayer Corner which is now open and available for everyone. A book has been provided in which prayers for people and situations may be written each week and at the main Sunday service, the book will be offered as part of the prayers of the Church, although individual entries will not be read out. In this way, the needs of the whole community will be brought to God as part of the Church's weekly intercessions. There is also some literature available which can be used to assist with praying, or taken away. In due course there will be a bowl and some tea-light candles. We trust this resource will be of value as a place of quiet prayer and meditation for everybody.
Prayer Partners - Prayer Partner slips for each month are usually available on the first Sunday of each month in 'The Tin' on the table adjacent to the church doors. New members of the partnership are always welcome - please contact Sally Clifton.
