St Andrew’s prayer diary

This is the old version of the website which is not kept up to date.
For the current website please go to

Psalms 105:1 Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim his greatness; tell the nations what he has done.
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, Saturday 2 March 2024, please pray for:
Craig, elders and pastoral visitors as they encourage and support the congregation

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