Pray the Lord’s Prayer 

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’

 

Reflection/thanksgiving

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

  • Is your heart troubled or afraid?
  • Why?
  • Come before Him now and name those things that trouble you, vex you, make you afraid, frustrate you, rob you.
  • Receive a powerful deposit of Jesus’ peace through the Holy Spirit right now.
  • Speak in tongues

1 Corinthians 14: 2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit… 4 Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves

 

Pray for nation

In particular:

  • A renewed and miraculous openness to the Gospel in all levels of society.
  • Cabinet ministers, MPs, judges, senior civil servants, police officers, teachers, University lecturers and leaders, industry leaders, House of Lords parliamentarians: saved
  • Revival in our nation: an outbreak of the Spirit’s power across the nation.
  • The lonely and vulnerable: community, encouragement, encounter with Jesus
  • Freedom from COVID and restrictions

 

 

Pray for our online and in-person prayer meetings.

Online:

  • Powerful presence of the Holy Spirit in the sung worship, prayers, preaching
  • Courage for us to ask visitors to join our Sunday meetings
  • Many visitors to access our on-line meetings and be drawn to Jesus and powerfully saved
  • Online prayer rooms: more to access these and encounter God’s love, power, transformation, healings
  • Even sharper, clearer and more anointed prophetic words from the prophetic team
  • We would not get weary or frustrated with the limitations of on-line meetings

In-person:

  • Would restart when appropriate
  • God’s protection over all those present in-person: no-one to become ill
  • Demand to grow for in-person meetings
  • Kids’ work to restart as safely and as soon as possible. Innovations to make this possible
  • The irresistible power and presence of the Holy Spirit

 

Intercede

  1. Name THREE people on your BLESS list right now (if you don’t have one, pray for three non-Christians whom you feel close to): ask for God to provoke them wonderfully to openness to Him and His offer of salvation. Pray God’s kingdom would come into their lives.
  2. Ask God how you can serve them. Ask Him to give you ideas about how you can show them the love, power and grace of God’s Kingdom and signpost them to Jesus.
