AUGUST PRAYER CARD


 


“Go out into the roads and the country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full.” (Luke 14 v23)


 


PLEASE USE THESE PRAYERS UNTIL 1st SEPT - WHEN IT’S OUR NEXT PRAYER DIARY COMES OUT


 


Why not re-read and think about Jesus’ Parable of the Great Banquet throughout this month? (Luke 14v15-24)


 


While things at church are a bit quieter in August, let’s use the opportunity to LOOK BACK & GIVE THANKS:


  • for all the ways God’s been at work in the last year;

  • for the children and families that attended holiday

    club & that just the right number of children came;

  • for the partnership and fellowship that we can share as two churches being one church family;

  • for the fun, joy and encouragement that special events have brought, e.g. St. Mark’s 50th birthday weekend & our big afternoon out at Birch Hall;


  • that God has answered prayers we have prayed;

  • that God brings all sorts of people to his banquet! 


ALSO PLEASE PRAY FOR A SPECIAL THEME EACH DAY:



MON:  our local schools - for staff & pupils to get a good break; for Hannah’s work; for opportunities  


TUE:  our mission partners - Mark and Ruth at Betel, Gift and Kathryn in Uganda, Catherine in Japan


WED:  our country and its leaders, at this time our town - and for a Great Awakening here


THU:  persecuted Christians across the world (maybe think of some of the countries we’ve prayed for this year)


FRI:  our church - for the right person to apply for the Associate Minister job; for holiness; for our outreach parish 


SAT:  other local churches & especially our growing partnership with St Paul’s, including Rachel’s work  


SUN:  the world and its leaders - for peace, justice, wise decisions, and for the gospel to go forward
