Prayer Diary

Saturday Pray that the Children's Craft Afternoon today will draw in children who don't usually  come to church events, and that they and their  parents will enjoy the activities and company while learning more of Jesus' love for them.
 
Sunday 9th December Ask for God's blessing on the Youth Group Christmas event this evening, and on our regular services, as we look beyond Jesus' first coming to the time when he will come again in power and great glory.

Monday Pray that the 'Connections' Christmas lunch today may be a happy and sociable occasion for all who come, whether regular members or visitors; for friendships to be deepened and for good conversations.
 
Tuesday Pray for the Felbridge School Carol Services taking place in church today, that they may be enjoyed by children, staff and parents alike and that the wonderful truth of Jesus' birth may come across clearly.
 
Wednesday Remember those who are struggling with debt, particularly with all the pressure and advertising to 'buy now, pay later' during the Christmas season. Pray for the agencies giving advice to people about managing debt.
 
Thursday The Church Army's Marylebone
Project in London may be particularly busy at this season; pray for the staff as they minister to women who are homeless, that they may find safety, shelter and God's love.

Friday Pray for the patients and their families at St Catherine's Hospice, dealing with the knowledge that they won't share another Christmas together. Pray for the volunteers and staff supporting them through this time.
 
Saturday There are more refugees and migrants than ever before, many of whom are Christians fleeing persecution. Pray for a united, worldwide and viable response to this immense crisis, and for the Aid Agencies striving to bring help.
 
Sunday 16th Pray for our services today, and for the Carol-singing at The Star this evening, Amid all the preparations and sparkle, may we and those we meet recognise afresh that God is indeed with us, transforming our lives.
