The Prayer Group

The prayer group all have a time of prayer at their own homes between 10 and 11am on a Fri morning. Each week there is a slightly different set of prayers.

 

Prayers for Week 29 NOV  2020

1, We give thanks for all the things we enjoy, living in this area. Wide open spaces, fresh air, available locally grown food, access to good health care and a safe environment. Things we might take for granted but others in countries around the world would love to have.

 

2,  We pray for all those coping with illness or bereavement. These are putting much more of a strain on families because of Covid-19. Those unable to visit relatives in hospital or care homes, especially those relatives who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s.

 

3,  We pray for all those people who are in positions of authority and having to guide us through these difficult times, making decisions that affect all our lives, often working in uncharted territory. From politicians to councillors, medical staff, scientists, economists, defence staff and the police, All working in their own sphere to keep us safe and help to get us through this pandemic.

 

4,   This pandemic has put great strain on the economy of our country and many others throughout the world. Poverty and unemployment are on the rise, charities and aid organisations are starting to struggle for funds. As always it will be those who don,t have much who will suffer the most. We pray for those who have the expertise to guide us through these times, to be able to plan the way forward and make decisions that will affect people, particularly the young who are embarking on their working lives. We think of the unemployed,those who might suffer from depression and anxiety because of their financial status.

 

5,  With so many problems as spoken about above it is important that we work together as families, communities, countries. We pray that the strongest will look out for the weakest. We ask God that he will help mankind as they deal with this challenge. Particularly our concern is for those countries who are dealing with other problems that are hard enough but compounded by the pandemic. We cannot begin to imagine the suffering they are enduring. We ask for God,s help and that many will turn to him at this time.

 

Amen.
