Pray for those who are lonely and feel isolated; may we be aware of those in need in our community. 

Our Nation

Pray for the logistics of rolling out the vaccination programme and for those who will work long hours to make this possible.  

Pray for businesses navigating the changes governing trade with the EU from 1 January.   

Pray for those of all ages who are experiencing increased mental health issues and pray that they may be able to access appropriate support.

The World

Pray for international cooperation and fairness in the distribution of vaccines.  

Pray for a smooth transition of power in the USA and for healing of divisions in society.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone, the new has come. 2 Cor 5:17.

Pray we may be a Christ-centred church, it is his Church not ours, his ministry not ours. Pray for Christ’s ministry in each of us and in the many different expressions of church.
