AUGUST Prayer Calendar

Prepared by Una Hubbard Church copyright licence 4536

Saturday 31 July

Finally this month we pray for the Kumon Group providing support for children in Maths and English

St Paul reminds us that we are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells within us. We are the living stones of the Church. This month let us remember each of our fellow stones bound together as we are by God’s love. You may find your Church directory useful, for just as builders gather their materials from different places. so we are gathered from different areas.

Sunday 1st August.

 “The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord.” R&S 566

 We pray for Rev. Mike Playdon who leads us in Worship today.

  Monday 2nd August   We give thanks for the small group of people who, led by the Spirit, were inspired to meet and Worship God in 1828.

 Tuesday 3rd August      We give thanks for the commitment and zeal of our forefathers. So many people joined them that land had to be bought and a new chapel erected here on Frederick St. in 1908, replacing the smaller building in Ashby Sq.

Wednesday 4th August    In our prayers today we hold before God those who worship now in this building and constitute the Church of Christ in this place. May we all have the same commitment and zeal as those before us.  

Thursday 5th August   Today we pray for those of our fellowship who live in the neighbourhood around our building.      Daphne & David L ; Pam G; Neilea H,; Cathy & Mike F-H.

Friday 6th August    We pray for those who see our Church building as they travel past it. May they take a minute to reflect on why it is there and what might happen inside it.  May those who rest in our Aroma Garden find peace.

Saturday 7th August Today we pray for  Derek H, & Les; Dilys & Tony P. ; Anne & Eddie G.. Jean A.; Raied E.

 Friday 27th August  Let us pray for all Christians today, particularly thinking of those who face persecution for their faith. We give thanks that we have freedom in this country to worship God and proclaim our faith.

  Saturday 28th August   May this be our prayer today  ;-

“ Let us build a house where love can dwell and all can safely live”

 Sunday 29th August  We pray for Daphne Beale as she leads us in worship today.

 May the grace of Christ our Saviour and the Father’s boundless love, with the Holy Spirit’s favour  rest upon us from above.
