The Prayer Group
Last Sunday we read from Psalm 33 - "... We wait in hope for the Lord. He is our help and our shield."
We came before the Lord and count our blessings for all the comforts we have, our freedom to worship etc... We gave thanks for our church which has stood as a witness to God's love for so long and that our church building is so well used.
We prayed that those who use it may meet Jesus here. We prayed for Amanda and other leaders of all the uniformed organisations and for all the fun activities organised.
We gave thanks for all those who, week by week, seek to spread the Good News of Jesus.
As is usual we prayed for those leading worship, especially in this area of Sheffield.
We prayed for the Bible Society whose aim is to distribute 2 million Bibles across Africa. We heard about a young man who was heading for a life of violence until he was introduced to the Bible. He is just one example of the many whose lives are turned around after receiving and reading the Bible.
We prayed for Donald Trump that he may realise that it's about the world not just America. May the Americans live up to their motto - 'In God we trust'.
Thank you Lord for all our blessings.
