Dear God, You have called us to be members of Your church in Thanet. Keep us working
and praying together, believing and serving only You. Be with us in our everyday lives
and encourage us to tell the good news of Your love to all those we know. Help us to show
by our actions that we love others more than ourselves: that we are true believers in You.
We pray that you may bless us richly as we continue to walk with You and trust You for
all that lies ahead. Amen.

‘Be still. for the Spirit of the Lord, the Holy One, is here.’ (David Evans)
Lord, help us to be still & wait for Your presence in our lives. May we take time to ask You to fill us with Your wisdom, creativity and guidance for the decisions we have to make in challenging moments in our lives. Thank you for constantly being with us.
‘Be still for the power of the Lord is moving in this place.’
Thank You, Lord, that You come to cleanse and heal all those who call to You. We pray for our nation, for the Queen who is facing so many challenges. We pray You will help her to make the right decisions in the days ahead. May she be aware of Your presence in her life.
We pray also for our Government, we ask that Ministers will seek Your guidance before making critical decisions, that we may once again be wisely and justly governed.
‘No work too hard for Him.’
We lift up to You all those suffering in Tonga after the Tsunami,; all those in Afghanistan who are suffering at the hands of mankind. You are able to bring comfort to a people in desperate need. We pray, Lord, that You will change the hearts of the oppressors, may Your people reach out with generous aid to bring relief to both countries.
‘Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty. Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee.’
‘Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?’ Romans 8:35. ‘I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.’ Romans 8:38-9
Lord, we live in a broken world, but, we have hope in You. May that hope go out into the world to give hope to the hopeless. We praise and bless You.
