Let’s Pray For Social Witness
Caring for a person with a learning disability can be a demanding task, especially at busy times of the year. Respite care enables the carer to look after their own wellbeing. Give thanks for Aaron House and Lawnfield House which offer this vital service, allowing families a much-needed break from their responsibilities.
Council for Public Affairs
Pray for all who work in the public square, and especially those within your own congregation who carry great responsibilities – for example those who work in the emergency services, healthcare workers, teachers and civil servants.
Pray for our politicians, north and south, as they seek to give hope at a time of despair for many. Especially pray for people most affected by spiralling prices in the winter season.
Council for Training in Ministry
Give thanks for the completion of another term at Union College, and pray for students and staff - that they would be blessed with rest and refreshment over the Christmas break. Pray too for those in congregational placements - that they would benefit from being part of the church family that they are placed in – both for their own walk with the Lord, and their preparation for ministry.
