UNITED REFORMED CHURCH
St Andrew’s prayer diary
We ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will, with all the wisdom and understanding that his spirit gives. Colossians 1:9 GNB
This diary has been created by Sheila May to help us focus our prayers on matters that mean a lot to us.
When we bring our prayers to God, can we really think about and maybe find out information from the internet or publications so we are more informed and can pray more powerfully? Think about the subject of the day and try to relate personally with it: is there something we should be doing, or is it something you want to find out about? Try speaking to others at St Andrew’s as we all have different knowledge to share.
Today, Friday 12 August 2022, please pray for:
UNICEF working to promote health worldwide
And in the days to come please pray for ...
