special to you. Anonymous suggestions can also be made.
Prayer Points for the Week:
General Assembly... Give thanks for the variety and
diversity of the work of PCI and pray for ministers,
representative elders, PW and SPUD representatives
this week as they meet to consider the various reports
being presented by the Councils and Commissions of
our denomination. Pray for wisdom and grace as
decisions are taken and resolutions passed on a
breadth of issues which affect the work and witness of
the church and it’s proclamation of the gospel through
word and action.
Global Mission... Pray for the various mission partners
who will be visiting the General Assembly from many
parts of the world. Pray that they will have an enriching
and uplifting Assembly and may experience the
warmth and welcome of their Presbyterian sisters and
brothers here in Ireland. Pray also for the churches and
countries they represent as they too seek to proclaim
the Gospel through word and action.
Stormont... Please pray that a workable solution may
be found to the current impasse in Stormont over the
Welfare Reform Bill. Pray for wisdom and
courage from all parties as they gather together in
Stormont House on Tuesday 2nd June to seek an
agreement. Remember also all those who are anxious
or worried about the impact of welfare cuts on
themselves or on their local communities and services.
Nursing Homes... Give thanks for the high quality of
care, commitment and dedication of staff in the various
nursing homes in the Omagh area, especially PCI’s
Harold McCauley Home. Remember the residents of
the homes in your prayers, that they would feel valued
and loved, receive good quality care and medical
attention and would have a sense of God’s peace and
presence with them.
