Summer Prayer Diary


Monday Pray for times of refreshment and renewal for all those on holiday, particularly school staff; for families to enjoy special times together without friction; and for grace and strength for those who have to be at work.
 
Tuesday Ask for God's blessing on all the Christian camps, conferences and activities taking place over the summer; for safety and protection, and above all for great opportunities to come to know God in a more personal way.

Wednesday
Pray for our own young people this summer, as some of them join a Christian Camp, and as there are various social events being organised for them. May this be an opportunity for them to grow together in faith.
  
Thursday As we hear various news reports from around the world during the next few weeks, let us turn them into opportunities for prayer for God's intervention, wisdom and mercy for the people and situations involved.
 
Friday So many of our church family have been in hospitals, Rehab centres, care homes, or unwell at home over the past weeks, and some are still struggling with difficult situations. Pray for God's healing, peace and comfort for each one.
 
Saturday Pray for all our Mission Partners: in Argentina and Uganda, responding to world crises, and in the UK. Pray that they may have times of refreshment and encouragement, and be conscious of our prayers for them.
 
Sunday Pray for all our services over the summer, as people come and go and numbers fluctuate. Uphold those who will be leading and preaching, that they will be empowered by the Holy Spirit, and that we may have open hearts.
