This week we continue our theme from Sunday of ‘Holding Lightly’. Each day we develop the theme a little more in a short 5 minutes video.
Let’s Pray For Community outreach worker: Lisnabreen
Christine Wilson asks us to give thanks for the creative ways they have been able to reach the most vulnerable during the pandemic. Pray for deeper relationships and more opportunities to witness. Pray for wisdom in dealing with increasing mental health issues.
Community outreach worker: Balbriggan
Josh McCance asks us to pray for the congregation in Balbriggan, that God would protect them in the midst of changing restrictions and that they would grow in their faith through the online Christianity Explored course and Home Group.
This season may not feel particularly conducive to meeting together to worship as a whole church, but that shouldn’t stop us singing and kneeling before the Lord in our lives. #tidesdaily
Thank you to Terry McMullan for sharing this with us today.
