July Prayer Diary

Psalm 139 v 23, 24

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!  And see if there is any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.



Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Please humbly pray for:

·        those struggling financially during these troubled days;

·        faith in God for all who are at risk of/have lost their job or business during the                           pandemic; and

·        renewed faith for those who miss communal worship and those struggling with their                 faith during these difficult days.



Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Please pray for:

·        those who have lost loved ones and are mourning at this time;

·        those in hospital or anticipating long awaited appointments for procedures;

·        those now at home and recovering from operations or procedures; and

·        these people to know that you are with them throughout this process.



Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Please pray for:

·        understanding -  that we know the Bible celebrates meekness where it says the last shall           be first, giving is receiving, dying is living, losing is finding, the least is the greatest and               that meekness is a strength; and

·        Benjamin – for his faithfulness in preaching The Word and that his sermons on The                 Beatitudes in the coming weeks will help us to understand more and more about these             most-loved portions of the New Testament.



Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Please pray for:

·        those in our world who are physically hungry because of the pandemic, wars or natural             disasters;

·        the large number of aid agencies who are struggling financially but continue to help in             so many ways;

·        generosity in both our giving financially and prayerfully;

·        those who hunger after you and are lost without weekly church services to attend; and               who struggle to “connect” digitally.



Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Please pray for:

·        Caroline in Tank as she travels home in early July for a much earned rest with her mum;           and

·        A blessing on her pupils, parents and staff and all those in the hospital in the compound.



Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Please pray for:

·        our governments in Edinburgh and in Westminster;

·        wise decisions regarding our safety and financial problems as we continue to ease out of lockdown;

·        the general public that they will obey the rules so that we can stay safe;

·        for countries elsewhere which are in turmoil due to aggressive oppressors; and

·        refugees here and abroad who are in temporary accommodations or transit camps and             for the aid agencies who seek to help them.



Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Please pray for:

·        our world - divided by race, gender, class, religion and so many other divisions we have             created;

·        people to understand that we are all created in Your image, each of us Your children;

·        opportunities for us to be peacemakers and agents of reconciliation – to be as salt and l           light in this dark world;

·        courage for us to share the Good News of Your love with family, friends and others; and

·        a blessing for Christians who are persecuted for their faith.
