Suggested Prayers

‘Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.’       Matthew 6:33

‘Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky. Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.’                             Psalm 85:11-13 ( English Standard Version)

Lord our creator, we praise You for beautiful countryside and the fruitfulness of the land. Please pour out Your blessings upon all who live and work in rural communities, particularly through the churches and chapels that faithfully preach and live out Your truth and grace.      Amen.

Pray for the Farming Community Network whose 400 volunteers in England and Wales help people deal with financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes. Pray too for other individuals and groups offering similar support.

We pray too for the work of ‘Home Start.’ This organisation works locally with families and single mothers who find themselves in difficult circumstances.

Lord Jesus, we praise You that although You were rich, yet for our sake You became poor, so that we through Your poverty might become rich. All we possess comes from You and we ask for a spirit of generosity to share with those who are in greatest need.         Amen.

Thanksgiving: for all who contribute to the life of this village, through neighbourly care, protecting the environment, and serving in voluntary groups and churches to raise funds, organise events, provide support and share the love and truth of the gospel. We give thanks for all the amenities we enjoy as a small community.

Pray for friends and family who are in need of our prayers. We pray especially for the family and friends of Mary Gardiner.

Please remember and pray for this Fellowship and all who enter through its doors. Pray for each group who meets here. Every day of the week our premises are used, We covert them for God. Pray for one another that we may

‘Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.’       Matthew 6:33

Almighty God, we bring before You the elected representatives of the UK Assemblies and Parliaments, and members of the House of Lords. Please enable them to work together honourably for the highest interests of each of our nations and be guided by the truth of Your Word.       Amen.
