About us: prayer

  • Now that the children are back at school, pray for a more normal year. Pray that they stay well, enjoy meeting their teachers and classmates, and settle easily into new routines.
  • Pray that September will bring a new beginning in our church life and that we will have renewed energy and motivation.
  • Pray that God gives us a fresh passion for Him and that we reflect on what He means to us.
  • Pray for the people of Haiti as they deal with repeated disasters and ineffective government.
  • Pray for the situation in Afghanistan and the people. Give them courage.  For those able to leave, help them to build a new life; for those who stay protect them.  Pray for our government that they will do what is right; that they will be honest and trustworthy.

    • Please pray for the small group of believers in the country. They are walking on eggshells and are uncertain who to trust. Pray that they find strength, wisdom, and supernatural peace in God’s promises.
    • Pray for the displaced. A new wave of refugees is expected to come from Afghanistan to many parts of the Middle East and the rest of the world. Pray for God’s protection and provision over them in their journeys.
    • Pray for the women. Many women fear that the Taliban rule would mean they would be stripped of opportunities for education. Women involved in education during the past years could also be at risk – pray for their protection.
    • Pray for the sick. Though underreported in international media, Covid-19 cases are spiking in the country and hospitals are limited in what they can offer. There is no certainty as to how the healthcare system will be able to sustain itself with the new Taliban government. Pray that the healthcare system will not collapse.
    • Pray that the country will not be a haven for extremists. The Taliban government of 20 years ago are known enablers of extremist Islamic organisations. With their newfound control over Afghanistan, the country could be host to a new generation of terror groups.
