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:
- Tolmers Avenue
- Tolmers Gardens
The Collect for 30 August - 4 September
Almighty God, who called your Church to bear witness that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself: help us to proclaim the good news of your love, that all who hear it may be drawn to you; through him who was lifted up on the cross, 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 Mexico.
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 continue to pray today for Mexico.
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.
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 Mongolia.
You could pray for yourself, for your growth in the knowledge and love of God. You could pray with the apostle Paul:
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9-11)
