Sunday 27th May 2018


As we are called to “make disciples of all nations” we ask for guidance and support from the Lord.

We pray for all leaders of the Church. We ask that they always act with humility and faithfulness. May past wrongs be addressed so that healing and reconciliation can follow.

As we hear reports of a new Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo we pray that it is quickly contained. We ask for wisdom and quick action from the medical staff and all those involved.

As we see breakdown in diplomatic relations with Iran and North Korea we pray for a decrease in tension and openness to discussion on all sides.

Exams continue across the country this week. We ask that all those sitting them do their best and are able to remain calm. We pray that whatever the results in August they know that their value is not found in academic success but as a loved child of God.

We ask for confidence to share our faith, and the hope we have in Jesus, with others this week emboldened by the Gospel knowledge that Jesus is with us always.

Heavenly father, we ask you to accept these prayers as we seek to live out the joy of the Gospel. Amen.
