Intercessory Prayer
Intercessory Prayer throughout the Parish
Jesus taught us to pray; to lift our hearts and burdens to God. What an awesome privilege?! There are many ways we pray for others; we pray individually
and in groups and we also have several ways of organised prayer:
The 24/7 Prayer Chain is coordinated by Marion Henderson; phone 04 905
1171 or email [email protected]
Specific names can be given to the parish office for inclusion in the news
sheet. This is for one calendar month only.
You can write your prayer on a ‘post-it’ and stick it up on one of the prayer
walls, either at St Paul’s or St Mark’s.
A parish prayer group meets each Friday in the Searle Room at St Paul’s between 11am-12noon. Kathleen and John Fleck oversee this group.
There is always someone available to talk or pray with you during or after
any service.
In your prayers, please pray for:
≈ Dan.
≈ Give thanks for the safe return of Adele & Griffin Cherrill who have been
to Fiji in preparation for a Fiji Mission Trip in 2015.

Lectionary Readings for Sunday 19 Oct 2014
29th Sunday in ordinary Time - Green
Psalm 96:1-9 A call for all nations to praise the Glory and Salvation of the Lord.
Isaiah 45:1-7 Isaiah prophesies the Lord’s using a pagan king to work his will.
Cyrus, the Persian ruler, is to subdue Babylon and free the Jews from captivity,
bringing about the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the restoration of the Temple.
1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 Paul’s greetings to the Christians in Thessalonica, whose
Church he founded in 49AD on his second missionary journey. He greets them in
the name of God, giving thanks for their labour of love and support for the new
church. Their faith is widely spoken about, even in Macedonia and Achaia.
Matthew 22:15-22 The Pharisees were angered at Jesus openly criticising their
stewardship, and sought ways to trap and arrest him. Asked whether it is rightful
for a Jew to pay taxes to the Romans, Jesus’ reply indicates we have obligations
to our temporal leaders as well as to our heavenly Father.
