Prayer Diary

Friday Pray too for Christian broadcasting agencies who can reach huge audiences in sensitive areas with practical advice for healthier lifestyles, sharing the Gospel, and providing Apps and resources for cell phones.

Saturday Several couples with connections to St John's are getting married this month. Pray for memorable, joyful celebrations and for God's blessing on the day itself and throughout their married lives.

Sunday 16th June Today is Fathers' Day. Thank God for the influence of our own fathers, and pray for fathers we know to be loving role-models for their children. Praise God that we have been adopted into His family!

Monday Pray for the Connections group as they meet this afternoon, and also for former members who are no longer able to come along because of illness or frailty, that they may not be forgotten.
Tuesday With various events coming up, thank God for every opportunity we have to love others - a friend, neighbour, or  even a stranger - by inviting them to hear God's life-giving Word for themselves.
Wednesday This evening there is the opportunity to meet at the church and join in the Prayer Walk around the parish, praying for individuals, families, schools, and businesses to experience God's love.
Thursday Today is World Refugee Day. Intercede for the millions who have had to abandon their homes because of conflict, persecution or extreme poverty, and pray that many may find refuge in Jesus.
Friday Pray for the work among young
people in all our local churches and schools; for VERVE on Friday evenings and BOSS on Sundays; and for our Youth team as they teach and disciple young followers of Jesus.
Saturday This evening the 'Riding Lights Theatre Company' is coming to St John's with a faith-inspiring production. Pray that the church will be full, and that many who come will be blessed, challenged and motivated.
Sunday As we have so many opportunities to learn how we can be justified through the atoning death of Jesus, pray for all the 'unreached' people groups around the world  to have the opportunity to hear for themselves.
