Prayers 5th August 2018

We pray for all local church and circuit office holders and for our local preachers and worship leaders

Today we pray for those who work in both the local churches and in the circuit contributing to the smooth running of the churches, and the wider circuit. We thank you for their commitment and hard work, asking for strength, wisdom and perseverance in fulfilling the roles You have given to them. We ask that You will enable each of us to encourage and to support them in their roles. We also thank You for those who may be stepping down this year thanking You for all that they have given to these roles. We pray for those taking on new roles that You will equip them for their tasks.

Lord, we offer You our local preachers and worship leaders as they lead services today and every week. We ask that You will continue to inspire them and lead them by Your Spirit.

Please give them time, strength and wisdom, as they plan their services to bring Your word to the congregations where they minister. As they seek to bring Your word to us and encourage us, so may we too encourage and pray for them in turn.

We also thank You for those whom You are calling even now, to be Local Preachers and Worship Leaders. We bring Ian and Pam Couchman to You as he prepares to start his ministerial training,

We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen
