For prayer

Assured that God ‘has surely listened and has heard my prayer’, we pray in faith for:
The people of Lebanon  – a country already in crisis, now reeling from the Beirut explosion.
Revival
in our nation, and for the church to respond to God’s calling to step up and step out.
Church families across South Bucks, that God would impact our whole region by His Spirit.
Gold Hill and Hope Church families & leaders as we play our part in seeing God’s kingdom come. Local initiatives (community support and Foodbanks) as we seek to support and serve those who are most vulnerable in our area, and share with them the good news of Jesus.
Gold Hill Seniors and all the team as they continue to encourage and support our guests.
Children & Young People: for our youngsters and their leaders (Natalie, Shona, volunteer teams) as God calls them to grow their relationship with him and encourage one another as disciples.
Minnis Bay Mission: giving thanks for 3,600 views over the mission, 457 hours of video content watched, 12,000 posts reached over Minnis Bay Facebook page; also for numerous testimonies received from families about the impact of the mission.  Prophetic words being shared with the team, and team members knowing His healing. Praying for protection for and growth in all who were impacted during this time.
