Pray thy will be done, not mine

Maranatha:  Come Lord Jesus

“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Gen1:31

Let us give thanks for all that is good.

Lord in your mercy: hear my prayer.


 Week Beginning: Sunday 16th April – Those who Suffer

“But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction.” Job 36:15

Remember those people known to you and those unknown:

those who may be suffering physically, mentally or spiritually.

those suffering from loss and grief

those suffering from conflict and living in need

Loving God may all who are suffering feel your comforting presence.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where I am going you know the way.” John 14:3 – 4

Remember all believers, those believers who came before us and those believers who will come after us.

Pray for Christian’s around the world

For those Christian’s persecuted for their faith

For our Church family and local churches

Thank you Lord for listening to our prayers
