“Offer prayers and petitions in the Spirit all the time.  Stay alert by hanging in there and praying for all believers”
Eph 6:18 (CEB)

Praise God…

  • the three-in-one – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • who creates and sustains everything
  • who has redeemed us through His only Son, Jesus
  • who lives in us and in whom we live

Thank God for…

  • the encouragements He sends us, as individuals, as a church family and as a nation (name these)
  • His gracious persistence in transforming us into the likeness of Christ
  • the challenges He has presented us with at home, at work, in church, in our relationships and in our community (name these)
  • all those with the courage to proclaim the Good News in a ‘bad news’ world (name those known to you)

Ask God to…

  • give us ‘stronger backs rather than lighter burdens’
  • turn His face towards us and, in mercy, to those who do not yet know Him (name those known to you)
  • grant strength and endurance to all those facing difficult trials whether of health, wealth or heartache (name those known to you)
  • help those who are suffering directly or indirectly from the effects of Covid-19 (name those known to you)

As we trust that our God can…

  • make the impossible possible
  • restore and renew us as His children and His people

In the name of Christ we pray,
Amen
