Prayer Calendar

Friday, 02 Dec 22

Pray for the St John's initiative to have a weekly 'Glebe Cafe' in the church hall, which provides a warm space and is dementia-friendly; pray that it will be discovered by those who would benefit most.

Saturday, 03 Dec 22

Pray for all the countries already struggling with severe droughts and/or terrible flooding, causing desperate food shortages and disrupting traditional farming methods and care of livestock, leaving families destitute.

Sunday, 04 Dec 22

Dear Lord: You have promised in the Bible to draw near to me as I draw near you. Please help me and all others connecting to services this weekend to be aware of your presence with us. Prompt and remind people to be committed to the services during these days. And please give us all an expectation that you will speak, inspire, encourage, comfort and challenge us. Build your church, Lord, and strengthen our unity, community and witness to Jesus your Son. Amen.

Monday, 05 Dec 22

We give thanks for the good numbers coming to the Monday Connections events. We pray for the online evening group and the afternoons Mark is available for counselling and chat. We ask for energy and wisdom for all staff and members who will work so hard in the run-up to Christmas.

Tuesday, 06 Dec 22

We pray for peace in our world, especially in Ukraine. We pray that the warm clothes and other necessities mentioned in the newsletter are given and get to those who need them. We ask for wisdom for our government as inflation, strikes and poverty increase.

Wednesday, 07 Dec 22

We pray for the Christmas card delivery around the parish, especially who have arrived in the district recently, that they may be open to attending some of the events and services.

We pray for the many people known to us who are ill, bereaved or anxiously trying to cope with paying for heating and food. We pray especially for those suffering from or caring for those with dementia.
