PRAYER

‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’
This is Jesus’ driving desire …… not only that each and every human being would experience life in all its fulness after death, but also during our time on earth.  Let us pray this week for a range of issues which compromise that fulness of life …… reflecting in general on situations, and then allowing ourselves to pray for individuals who may be challenged in each area.

Ill-health (physical, mental, emotional)  – that those suffering would experience healing & restoration, have access to appropriate professional care, and sense God’s touch in their challenges

Relational breakdown (couples, families, different generations) – for tensions to reduce and fade, for healing and opportunities to forgive and be forgiven, for reconciliation and restoration, and for protection in the meantime

Financial / material hardship – for everyone finding it difficult to eat, find shelter and ensure their basic needs are met in order to ensure good health and protection: and for all those serving to come alongside and support others into a more secure situation.

Unemployment – for those recently or long-term unemployed and not yet able to find opportunity for their skills and resources: for opportunity for all, and for support services to be resourced themselves in order to help others secure the dignity of work

Those in care (as children, Seniors, individuals with disability) – for protection, quality of care, the right balance of independence and assistance, for good onward links…..

Those suffering injustice – for all people receiving unjustified harsh treatment at home and abroad, through government systems/legislation, the judicial system, commercial exploitation, prejudice in any form …….

It goes without saying that in addition to praying for each situation above and for practical/tangible progress and resolution, more than anything else we also pray for revelation from Jesus, restoration to Jesus and relationship with Jesus for each individual concerned.

‘Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your glory – because of your love and faithfulness to us.’

N.B Please pray for Maria Bond specifically – speaking at King’s Church in Iver both this Sunday (18th) and next (25th)
