Pray for those who are unwell or facing/recovering from surgery or treatment presently: Heather, Jack, Graham, Ben, Lauriane, Neville, Cassie (now at Katie Rose), Carol, Val.

Remember Phil and family following the death of Roz.

Please give thanks to God for his goodness and grace. Praise him for all we’ve seen in the 2 Timothy series. Pray that we will be bold to speak for Jesus despite whatever cost that may mean. Pray that we’ll know the truth of the Gospel and fend off all false teaching.

Associate minister – Please pray for the minister and his family now considering the role and give thanks for the approval of the bishop and archbishop. Pray for wisdom and insight, and guidance and peace about what the Lord would have them do.

Give thanks for the women’s retreat and for all who worked so hard to plan and organise the weekend. Give thanks for Elizabeth Richards and ask God’s blessing on her as she travels now in Africa, visiting CMS missionaries.

Please pray for Mark and Susan as they have holidays – that the Lord will bring rest and refreshment and wonderful family time. Pray that the retreat Mark will take in the first week of June will be a time of spiritual refreshing and drawing close to God.

Please be in prayer for our weekend-in on prayer! Pray for Kevin Simington in his preparation that he will be inspired by God to teach His word in a way which will move and change us.
