Please pray for all those in our fellowship here and in your circles of family and friends who are experiencing difficult times at the moment. Pray that whatever their need God’s presence and loving care will surround them in their situation. Please pray for those in ill health, those awaiting treatment or results of tests, those struggling with mental and spiritual problems and those who have problems relating to family and work issues. Our Circuit prayers encourage us on Remembrance Sunday especially to pray for a proper commemoration of the sacrifice of those who’ve given so much for others- especially in times of conflict; for the world as it still struggles to find and follow ways of peace; for ourselves as we rise to the challenge of the “ministry of reconciliation” that the apostle Paul speaks of (2 Corinthians 5)

Please pray for all those who are involved in the Stationing programme at this time. Pray for those who are preparing to move to new appointments and for churches who are inviting new ministers to their circuits, that they will be guided in their decisions by God and his will may be done.

Please pray for all those who are homeless and having to sleep on our streets. Pray that a lasting solution may be found to this problem and also pray for safety for all who have no homes. Please pray too for all those who seek to help in this situation.

Pray too for the work of the many Food Banks throughout the country and for all who volunteer to help and for those who donate items. Pray that those in most need will be able to access Food Banks and find help in their situation.

Please pray for all the ministers and local preachers throughout our circuit. Pray that they will be guided and protected by God as they carry out their ministry here. Pray too for their families and friends in their daily lives.

Please pray for Christians in areas of the world who are unable to meet together or to openly confess their belief in God and Jesus. Pray that they will not suffer from persecution for their beliefs and be kept strong in their faith. Please also thank God for the privilege we have of worshipping Him freely and openly and asking that we may never take this for granted.
