For prayer

‘Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.’ (Phils 4:6): and so we pray with confidence for:
Young families, children and young people
: that in the midst of our unusual rhythm of life at present, they would meet and come to love Jesus. For Shona, Natalie & teams to have wisdom, sensitivity & perseverance as they lead.
Local schools: wisdom and stamina for leaders & staff teams as they ensure ongoing education, safety and support; for peace of mind and receptivity for pupils as they adapt to many changes.
Our young adults as they study, take gap years, start out in adult life with the particular challenges of this current season: to stay close to Jesus as they make life-shaping decisions about daily life and their longer-term future.
Gold Hill Seniors: protection and hope for our Senior friends themselves, and creativity and energy for the team as they support their ‘guests’ each week.
Gold Hill Care (Rock House, Graham House, Gold Team): continued protection, guidance and energy as they care for more vulnerable people in our community.
Foodbanks, CAP, other support services: to bring the love of Jesus as well as practical support to those who are finding life tough at the moment.
Gold Hill, Hope, church families in our area: to grow in unity and strength to share the Good News of Jesus.
Our local community: that hearts would soften towards Jesus, and His Kingdom grow here
Our nation: for wisdom for leaders in all spheres of life, and for our nation to honour God once again.
