St Andrew’s prayer diary

We struggle and work hard, because we have placed our hope in the living God, who is the savour of all and especially of those who believe. 1Timothy 4:10 GNB

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, Monday 10 August 2020, please pray for:
Relationships put under strain from money, health or addiction problems.

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