Summer Prayer Diary

Monday Pray for times of refreshment and renewal for all those on holiday, particularly for school staff; for families to enjoy special times together without friction; and 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 know God in a deeper way.

Wednesday Pray for our own young people this summer, as some of them attend a  Christian camp, and as there are various activities organised for them. May this be an opportunity to grow together in their faith.

Thursday As we listen to 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 Intercede for all we know who are going through times of stress and difficulty: those who are ill, struggling with disability, caring for family members, grieving for loved ones, or anxious about work situations.

Saturday Pray for all our Mission Partners, in Argentina and Uganda, as well as those working in the UK; that they may have times of refreshment and encouragement, and be very conscious of our prayers for them.

Sunday Pray for 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 enabled by the Holy Spirit; and that we may have open hearts.
