Prayer Points and Prayer Requests

Lord, we pray for Gail Light, who is still in Nobles hospital. ( now ward 8 and able to receive visitors ). We pray for her health and that a place can be found for her in sheltered accommodation.

We continue to pray for Bill Mummery, that he might have relief from pain.

We pray for members of St Augustine's church and particularly Jules and Rehka as they face the trial of bringing God's word to us.

We pray for the home group meeting which takes place tonight (Wednesday), and again on Monday afternoon.

And Finally.....

Yesterdays bible reading from 'Our daily bread' was from Revelation 3:1-6 and the need for the church in Sardis to 'wake up!

If you are finding it difficult to 'wake up' and allocate time with Jesus, they offer some suggestions. Read In his presence from their free discovery series
