PRAYER

‘But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed?  And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard?  And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent?  As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ (Romans 10:14-15)
May we have ‘beautiful feet’ today and throughout the week, and support others in prayer where we are unable to go!

Father God, we lift to you:
• our world: for your touch in restoring, reviving, demonstrating your love and your power, especially in:
– India: as they are experiencing a deadly Covid wave, seeing infection rates soar and rapidly rising death tolls
– Unrest in the face of controlling governments in Myanmar, Hong Kong ……
– Climate change: for current global talks to reach impactful agreements
• our nation:
our government as they seek to support/guide the nation emerging from lockdown/the impact of Covid
– our health service, as they see falling demand through Covid but face the backlog of other health needs
– our education sector, as they ‘make up for lost time’ – seeking to end the academic year well and promote the wellbeing of pupils/students
– businesses and related services as they week as they re-establish operations as restrictions ease
– charities and support organisations as they seek to care for the most vulnerable in our country
• church families and individual Christians
– 
caring for those who have experienced very real hardship during the past year
– seeking to share Jesus with families, friends and neighbours
– seeking to be a voice in their communities and other places of influence

‘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 this Sunday (25th)
