During August, the regular prayer email is having a slight change in format. For each day there will be some prompts for your own prayers, as well as a country (or two) for which to pray.
Praying for the Parish
Please pray this week for all in these roads:
- Theobalds Road
- Thrush Lane
The Collect for 23 - 28 August
Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray and to give more than either we desire or deserve: pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask but through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
You could pray about something from the service on Sunday, for example: something you are grateful for, a change you would like to make in your life, or someone you particularly want to pray for.
Please also pray today for the Maldives.
You could pray for global situations which are on your mind. You could pray for wisdom for leaders; for peace where there is war; for resources to get quickly to where they are needed, and for generous hearts for those who are in need.
Please also pray today for Mali.
You could praise and thank God for any blessings that you are grateful for at the moment; for home, family, health, financial security, church family, weather, or anything else which is a particular blessing at the moment.
Please also continue to pray today for Mali.
You could pray for our community in Northaw and Cuffley, praying for the people you meet regularly, both in and out of the church family. You could pray that God will warm hearts to him, and grow his kingdom in our parish.
You could pray especially for those we know with on-going needs, who need stamina, respite or special care at the moment.
Please also pray today for Mauritania.
You could pray for yourself, for your growth in the knowledge and love of God. You could pray with the apostle Paul:
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24)
