This month's prayer points

Prayer points for February 2021

Praise God for:

  • For the number of unbelievers who heard the gospel through the series of evangelistic videos and crib videos over Advent.
  • For the spirit of humility within the leadership and the congregation that has allowed us to adapt services and gatherings as Covid-19 restrictions have changed.
  • The provision of the community centre to meet in and the technology needed to stream.
  • The encouragement of Home Groups and the numbers engaging.
  • Safety and strength in this difficult time

Keep praying for:

  • A rebuilding of momentum as we meet together on Zoom on a Sunday morning and as we gather physically on a Sunday afternoon. 
  • Zeal, enthusiasm and vision as we seek to continue to proclaim the gospel to people around us during lockdown. Pray especially for the Network Christianity Explored course
  • Our sermon series’ in Isaiah and 1 Timothy – that we might know God better and live well as a local church in response
  • Our Easter plans and passion sermon series build-up.
  • Our connection and support to the world-wide church


Open Doors prayer points

  • Praise God that "Prisoner 42" found freedom and safety outside North Korea. Thank God that he knows her by name and calls her his own.
  • Please remember the thousands of North Korean believers who remain in prison camps. Pray that, even in the face of great suffering, they would know and experience God's sustaining presence.
  • There are an estimated 300,000 - 500,000 secret Christians in North Korea. Please pray that, as they worship in underground churches, their faith will be emboldened with a spirit not of fear, but of power and of love.
