EASTER PRAYER DIARY

 

THE ANGELS SAID –

“Why do you look for the living among the dead?

He is not here; he has risen!

Remember how he told you…” (Luke 24 v.5-6)

 

PLEASE USE THESE PRAYERS UNTIL 25TH APRIL

WHEN OUR NEXT PRAYER DIARY COMES OUT

 

Why not read part of Luke chs.19-24 each day

 

EACH DAY PRAY FOR:

• The next couple of special services or events - for ourselves & for visitors

• People who have already been to one of these - that they respond to the Good News they heard.

• Our plans for starting things next term, including:

- our “What is Christianity?” course (starts 12th Apr)

- Searchlights & Little Fishes in St John’s

 

Ourselves: that we would trust in Jesus’ death for forgiveness, and know the joy of his resurrection

Pray something inspired by today’s Bible reading

 

ALSO PRAY FOR A SPECIAL THEME EACH DAY:
