Monthly Prayer Meeting

Monthly Prayer Meeting 

6:00pm on the first Sunday

of each month,

currently on Zoom.

I am writing to tell you a little more about the monthly prayer meeting. As Howard Cunning-Smith said in our Zoom Service, a number of the All Saints’ family have felt for some time that it would be good to meet together in an informal way to pray and seek Gods direction for our Church and Community. You may be wondering why we are suggesting another meeting outside of out normal church services and it’s simply an opportunity to put an hour aside each month to pray together with a particular desire for God and the Holy Spirit to work in our lives and in our Church. In Acts we read how “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus and his brothers”.

We hope that many of you will be able to join us as we pray. Some people will be happy to pray out loud but there will be no obligation to do so. There will be times of silence as we listen to God and are lead by the Holy Spirit. I hope that people will feel free to read words from Scripture and share things that God has laid on their heart. No one will be put under any pressure to participate in any way that makes them uncomfortable. God will hear all our prayers and petitions whether they are spoken out loud or are in the silence of our own hearts.

We trust that God will speak to us at this meeting and we will feed this back to Charlie and those in Leadership Team for their consideration and encouragement. If you have any particular prayer topics that you think should be included then please email/telephone the Church Office and someone will get in touch with you.

All Saints Church Prayer Guide for

July 2021

These are the prayer topics which we will be praying for at our prayer meeting, 4th July at 6pm.

Where is God Leading Us?

Pray for revival of our Church and Community:

  • For families, neighbours, church, and community. That they will meet with God in a new way.
  • That the Holy Spirit will work in our lives and our church enabling us to carry out his will.
  • For the community we serve. As we reach out into our community with prayer, conversations, and actions, God’s love will be reflected in all that we do and that God’s glory will be experienced in a new way by many.
  • For a renewed hope and restoration of relationships with God.
  • That all of us will experience renewal and refreshment in our Christian journey and experience a fresh vision of God’s power and grace.

Pray for All Saints Church as lockdown eases:

  • As our church and community navigate our way out of Covid restrictions: -We pray that God will move ahead of us.
  • We pray that we, with the power of the Holy Spirit, will move forward with unity, show patience, listen to one another and have love for each other. I Peter 3:8
  • That God will be ever present in this transition.
  • For the future plans to meet the needs and challenges of church and community. What might we change, what might stay the same?
  • For Godly inspired decisions across all areas of ministry as we adapt and gather again and that we will show love to each other as we go through this period of adjustment.
  • We pray for families engaged in our church, those families returning to all Saints’ and for Families not yet reached
  • We give thanks for Dale and the Family and the ministry for children, youth and families. We pray for their accommodation needs and the school places for Elijah and Micah.

Pray for the summer

  • We pray for visitors and families who visit our Church, during the holidays to find a warm welcome, faith and fellowship
  • We pray for those going away to travel safely and know your peace and presence, for times of rest and refreshment
  • We pray for Rev’d Sam Haigh (and Hannah) and their children to have a rest at the Vicarage whilst Charlie and Sarah are away

Please use these prayer topics for your prayer times during this month.

Many thanks, Howard Cunningham-Smith
