PRAYER DIARY

January Prayer Diary 2022

 

Know that the Lord, He is God!  It is He who made us and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 100 v3)

 

Mondays

Now that Christmas is over, “ponder anew what the Almighty can do” and did.

Give thanks for that first Christmas when Jesus left heaven for US to die on a cross for US, using CH4 124 as a basis for your prayer.

 

Tuesdays

Give thanks for all the Christmas services last month and all who attended, for those who helped in any way and for Benjamin’s preaching. Pray for a blessing on those who attended worship, and those who were unable to attend.  Pray for the services in the coming year.

 

Wednesdays

Pray that Benjamin may have a good rest as he takes a break at the beginning of this month. Pray for good health and relaxation as he and Marie take a well-deserved break.

Pray for David as he prepares to preach and for Harry as he covers the pastoral needs of the Parish.

 

Thursdays

Pray for families grieving the loss of loved ones. Pray that they will find comfort in God’s love as Benjamin or Harry tend to these families. Use CH4 153 as a basis for prayer.

 

Fridays

Pray for the Compass Centre which suffered a lot of structural damage during storm Arwen. Pray for skilled workmen to do the repairs and for the finances to pay for these repairs.

Pray for the conferences planned for this year that they will be able to take place.

 

Saturdays

Pray for our country as we continue with COVID restrictions. Pray that people will be patient and careful in all they do. Pray for our governments; that they have wisdom when making decisions.  Pray for all who have either lost their jobs or are worrying about their future employment. Pray for those who are COVID positive.

 

Sundays

Pray for the ongoing repairs to our church.  Pray that the roof works and the emergency lighting in the sanctuary will soon be completed this month.  Pray that once internal redecoration is complete, the building will be a more comfortable place to worship and hold community events – to God’s glory. Give thanks for those leading on these works.
