St Andrew’s prayer diary

O God it is right for us to praise you in Zion and keep our promises to you, because you answer prayers. Psalm 65:1 GNT

Sheila May

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, Thursday 20 June 2019, please pray for:
The Samaritans, who listen to and support people with all sorts of problems either by email, phone, letter or in person.

And in the days to come please pray for ...
