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
