🙏 Prayer


Special prayers for the COVID-19 Pandemic
Guide us in the path of discipleship, so that, as you have blessed us, we may be a blessing to others, bringing the promise of the kingdom near, by our words and deeds.
  • Pray for Lourich’s Mum, Elaine and his stepdad Thinus in Africa who have both contracted Covid 19 that they will be protected from a worsening infection and will be able to receive appropriate treatment and make a speedy recovery. Comfort Lourich and Brenda as they seek to support them from afar.
  • Pray for modifications that have been made to vaccination protocols that they will give priority to protecting the most vulnerable in our community and achieve the goal of ultimately providing maximum protection to all Australians.
  • Pray that those who have already had their first Astra Zeneca vaccination will have wisdom as they make their decision about their second vaccination.
  • Pray that the revised vaccination schedules and the operation of the mass vaccination clinics will be well formulated, the logistics of the delivery of vaccines throughout Australia will run smoothly and the accompanying advertising program will be successful.
  • Pray that any outbreaks of the spread of infection will be quickly brought under control and researchers will be able to identify and track cases to isolate the source(s)
  • Pray that the range of views about opening Australia’s borders will lead to the right decisions being made about the timing of these changes.
  • Pray that our leaders will have great wisdom as they decide what to do about the repatriation of Australian citizens during Covid.
  • Give thanks for those governments worldwide who are putting aside funds to assist poorer countries to have their own vaccination programs and pray that they will have great wisdom as they embark on the program that there will not be a “rich/poor divide” and there will be sufficient funds for all people needing vaccinations to receive them.
  • Pray that we will be sensitive to the needs of others in our community who are suffering additional stresses as a result of measures that have been introduced to reduce the spread of the virus. Ask also that God will give us ways we can show His love to those around us.

General prayer points for this week
Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39

Father God, thank you for this truth: nothing can separate us from You. When we feel unworthy of Your love, please bring this verse to the front of our minds. Help us to always remember that You are with us, You care about us and You deeply love us. Allow us to embrace this truth, and live in Your freedom! In Jesus name, Amen
  • Pray for Willem’s mum as she continues her treatment that it will achieve all that is intended. Be with the whole family as they interact remotely with each other in supporting Brenda.
  • Pray too, for Simone’s mum and dad, for speedy and complete recovery after their recent surgery, and as they make plans for their future home as they both recover. Pray, too, for Willem, Simone, Amelie and Madeleine as they “minister to them at a distance”.
  • Pray for Paul Stewart as he continues to receive treatment at North Shore Hospital, that this will bring about improvement in his health. Comfort him and grant him patience as he receives hospital care
  • Pray for all those in our Church family who are facing stresses of various kinds that they might know that you are the God who cares and we might be able to support them in prayer.
  • Ask God to show us how we should worship Him now as a Church, after worshipping at home privately and virtually on Sabbath for so long, and that our lives will be influenced by the reality of what He did so long ago.
  • Pray for Amy and Gil as they settle into life in Perth that all the necessary arrangements will proceed smoothly and Gil's pathway to full health will be guided by You.
  • Pray for those in our Church family who are looking for new accommodation, that they will be guided by you as they search.
Holy, holy, holy God, fill us with strength and courage, with discernment and compassion, that we may be your instruments of justice and love in this world, that it may be on earth as it is in heaven.
