Prayer Points
Discipleship. Pray that we might act wisely rather than foolishly as we wait for the
Lord’s return, being active rather than passive disciples.
St Patrick’s Day Ireland. In this week give thanks for the growth of Biblical faith
throughout the island, for churches and fellowships spreading the good news across
religious, cultural and ethnic lines. Pray for the spread of the good news, that the Lord
might be honoured by his people in this land.
My Hope 2015. Pray for the event planned by the Newtownbreda and Belvoir churches
for the Ramada Hotel on 12 April, that it might be the means of people coming to faith,
and that the God of the cross and resurrection might glorified.
Stormont. Pray for a resolution of the crisis in the Executive. Pray that the Stormont
ministers and political parties might be able to set aside any sense of playing politics
with this crisis and concentrate on good government.
