24 March 2019
- Thank God for prayers answered, for health and livelihood, for safe journeys in travel, for recovery from illness and depression, and for lives changed and brought back to God.
- For brothers and sisters serving in various ministries in our church, from preachers and teachers, to deacons, group leaders, teachers, cooks, cleaners, etc.
- Thank God for the mission work going on all over the world despite often very difficult conditions, and against powers and principalities in a fallen world.
- For God’s great love and continuing grace and blessings on us, and for family and friends.
- Thank God for our two Church properties, and continuing repair and renewal to serve our needs and glorify His Name.
- For the AGM a few weeks ago and deacons taking up the various posts in SCCC. Pray for more young people willing to come forward to serve on church council.
- Pray for our brothers and sisters suffering persecution for their faith all over the world, for God’s mercy and comfort.
- For those suffering from disasters, and tornados, snowstorms, landslides, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tsunami, and other calamities in many parts of the world.
- Pray for those suffering after the shooting at which 50 worshippers were killed at the Christchurch mosque in New Zealand.
- Pray for our country and Brexit, difficulties in the US Congress, and growing political tensions in many countries, including Syria, Venezuela, China, USA, Malaysia and Singapore.
- For our church, that we remain true to our calling, and that the Lord will prepare and send someone called by Himself for the important and responsible position of a full time paid church pastor in our church. In the meantime for us to raise a pastoral team to minister to our members.
- Pray for the UK authorities as they look again at GDPR and make organisations take responsibility for personal data, and our church taking our actions seriously.
- For our church leaders and deacons in their walk before God, and to put God first before all things. Pray for the proper balance of their responsibilities in church, their professional and family lives and leisure time. Pray for them to wait upon the Lord, and that important decisions are not made in haste but after diligently seeking the Lord.
- Pray for our synchronised church midweek prayer meeting in our own homes at 7pm on Tuesday nights. For God to convict us to come together to pray as a church again. As His church we need to seek Him, to do His work, and to do it His way, and with His almighty power and strength.
- For the final preparations for NEEC 2019, speakers, workshop leaders, and individuals planning to participate, including a good number from SCCC.
- Pray for our Holy Communion service on Sunday and good attendance at our monthly three congregation combined church prayer meeting. Pray that love in SCCC will prevail over differences and truth to be made known through diligent study of the Bible and serious prayer.
