Our Father in heaven. holy is your name, as your Kingdom comes, we pray that your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven. We ask that we might see and share something of your majesty and glory as we realise again how great you are. In and through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.

Is he worthy? - Andrew Peterson
“God exalted Jesus at His right hand as Leader and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.” (Acts 5 v 31, 32)
OUR TOWN/ NATION/ WORLD
• Partnership: Give thanks for the involvement with Linton Lane and the North Primary School as a further 40 food parcels were given to families on Friday. Pray for the opportunity to partner with the school with further projects serving the physical and spiritual needs of the community.
• The Global Church: As Adam shared with us last Sunday pray that in the Church, the global Church, there will be evidence of the Lord’s Great Power and Great Grace leading to Great Fear among the people so that ‘multitudes of men and women’ will trust in Christ.
• Leadership: Give thanks that the lockdown restrictions are being relaxed and pray that there will be no second wave of infection. As the leadership of Newcraigs considers the implications of the easing of restrictions for the Church pray they will know the Lord’s guidance. Pray this also for all those who have to make such decisions for their fellowships so that the Church will emerge from the lockdown stronger than ever.
• Progress of the Gospel: Pray for increasing interest in the message of the Gospel among the people of our town and nation resulting in more and more logging onto the live streaming of Sunday worship services. Pray also that the Word of God will ‘spread widely and grow in power’ that the witness of the Church will be clear, unmistakable and effective.
• Weary in the Work: Bring before the Lord all those who are in ministry, serving the Lord faithfully and are not tired of the work, but tired in the work. Pray for renewal and encouragement. Remember also brothers and sisters known to us who are finding the Way tough and are in need of the Lord’s reassurance, comfort and hope.
• Treatment and Vaccine: Continue to pray for the human trials searching for a treatment and a vaccine. Give thanks for those willing to be involved in these trials and pray that in His time the Lord will grant a breakthrough so that many families will not have to endure the devastating pain of loss. Pray for all those who have been bereaved.
• Government: Give thanks for the stability of our system of government, despite human fallibility, as those in public office have a very difficult role to fulfil. Pray that God will guide them in their decision-making and that they will resist the temptation to misuse their position. • The Economy: As the economy of our nation begins to rebuild pray that businesses will recover quickly and increase their workforce, reducing the prospect of mass unemployment. Pray for the recovery of those most seriously affected by the lockdown, especially those who are self-employed and owners of small businesses.
