continue to pray without ceasing


Sunday 12th July

Pray for an end to the spread of Covid-19

Covid-19 did not take God by surprise; 
He still governs and sustains the world (Colossians 1:17).
 
LORD we pray for Your healing mercy and that You would graciously bring this pandemic to an end. 
LORD we pray also for healing
for all those affected by the virus.
Amen

Monday 13th July

Pray for our Government Leaders

At all times we are called to pray for those in positions of authority (1 Timothy 2:2).
This is especially
true during a time of national emergency. 

LORD we pray for Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer and their advisors, 
and
all those making decisions related to public health and safety. 
We pray for a spirit of bipartisanship as they
work together to protect people.
Amen

Tuesday 14th July

Pray for our Church Leaders

Church ministers and their leadership teams around the country 
are making difficult decisions related to
public worship and the safety of their members. 

LORD we pray that they will have wisdom to faithfully shepherd 
the
congregations under their care (1 Peter 5:2), 
even if they may not be able to physically gather in church for worship. 
LORD we pray for Ian
Heath, Natalie Hackett and Gary Ridley
Amen

Wednesday 15th July

Pray for the spread of the Gospel

LORD in this time of great anxiety, we pray that Your people would be ready to meet the world with the comfort and hope that only the good news of Jesus Christ can offer. 

LORD we pray for all those on the Online Alpha Course which began at S Chad last week.
We pray that each one of them will get to know You more, 
and become closer to You throughout the coming weeks.
Amen



S Chad Online Alpha Course
began last Wednesday but its not too late to still join the course 
(see the church notices for full details)


Thursday 16th July

Pray for honest reporting

 LORD we pray for all those in the news media, reporters and journalists, 
that they would accurately
report updates about the status of Covid-19, 
and not seek to peddle conspiracies, 
politicise the threat, or
stoke fear where it is unwarranted.
Amen

Friday 17th July

Pray for a spirit of generosity

During this time, churches may face a loss of income 
when there are many opportunities to meet
physical needs. 
LORD we pray that Your people will manifest a spirit of generosity
and sacrificially give of their time
and resources to meet needs that arise (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
Amen

Saturday 18th July

Pray for a spirit of trust

LORD Scripture teaches us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, 
but of power, love and self-control (2 Timothy
1:7). 
LORD we pray for enduring faith during this season of heightened anxiety and confusion. 
Help us LORD to continue to rely on You and trust in Your purposes and plans.
(Romans 8:28).
Amen
