Ian Mobbs as he teaches us today in our service.

Continue to pray for all those included in the prayer requests in our newsletter, but also for the prayer pastors who are supporting those in need of prayer. 

Suzie Carey who has been in hospital with  tremendous pain with a back problem. Pray for healing. 

Pray for significant progress at the

next stage of climate change talks

taking place

in Chile from 2-13 December. Pray for the prophetic voice of

the communities and generations

most affected by climate change

to be heard and to be heeded and

responded to. 

Ladies Meeting who are having their Christmas lunch today. Pray also for Pam Roberts who will be speaking at the meeting today. 

Please also pray for the First Friends Christmas Party – that the children will know Jesus in at the heart of their Christmas. 

Etienne Moolman who is going for his hospital check up today. Pray for absolute healing of his eyesight.

Pray for discernment as we head for the polling booths. Much prayer is needed for the government (whichever it is) as it faces the challenges ahead.  

Ignite Christmas Party.  Pray that the children will know Jesus is the most important gift they have this Christmas.

Pray for the Chibok girls, Leah Sharibu and many other girls abducted by Boko Haram. This will be another Christmas spent away from their loved ones in terrible circumstances. Ask the Holy Spirit to renew their faith and pray for their release.  

Pray for Paul’s friend Val who has health problems.

Pray for Tom Baker as he prepares to teach us tomorrow. 

Pray for the missionaries working for Trans World Radio – our offering of the month.

Candlelit carol service this evening at 6.30pm; that it is a time of reflection for all who attend; that our community knows that Christ is the reason for Christmas and that they are blessed and feel the Lord’s peace in our church. 

Increasing government control means that Christians in house churches in China will celebrate Christmas this year in small home groups instead of larger meetings. Pray that the growing restrictions they face will fade in comparison to the joy of celebrating the birth of King Jesus.

A series of mass arrests in Eritrea earlier this year left over 200 Christians in prison, including over 100 women. Prisoners here are kept in horrific conditions and forced to do long hours of manual labour. Ask God to strengthen them with all power so that they may have great endurance and patience (Colossians 1:11)

Rita Alford is battling with a form of leukaemia.  Pray for further remission.

Pray also for those who meet in home groups this evening.

Pray for Mark Castleden as he leads the bible study this evening. 

For God’s protection and wisdom for secret believers who choose to celebrate Christmas this year; that all Christians who are persecuted for their faith would experience the peace and joy of our Saviour. 

It’s ‘Builder’s Friday’ in Tiverton tonight, a night where the businesses close for Christmas and there will be a lot of people out celebrating. Please pray for the safety of the Street Pastors who will be out tonight during these celebrations, as it can get quite hairy and also for the prayer pastors who devote their time to pray for those in our town. 

Let us pray for all who are cold, hungry, or alone this night. Pray for all who wander alone or have no place to lay their head, they may experience the hope of Christ and that they are led to church this Christmas and receive His salvation.

Pray for Jules Castleden as she gives the Christmas message today.

Please also pray for all those who have volunteered their time in preparing the Christmas meal for us at lunch time.  Pray that all who attend have a blessed time together. 

Pray for all of the Christmas Eve services that are taking place tomorrow when many non-believers attend church.  Pray that they may find God’s love in the sermons they hear and that they will come to know of His love and forgiveness for them.  Pray that the Holy Spirit gives boldness to invite someone to church so that they too might receive the greatest gift of salvation.    

On Christmas Eve, join people praying for peace in the Holy Land.  Pray for Israeli and Palestinian women working together through the Musalaha Ministry of Reconciliation to bring the hope of peace to this land.  Women are training here to become advocates of peace to change the negative perceptions people have grown up with.  

Pray for Luke, Mark and Jules’ son who is away from his family this Christmas whilst serving in the Falklands, but also for Kate and Harry who will be missing him.

Please also pray for anyone who spends Christmas apart from their family as it can be a very lonely time of year.

Pray for the work of all our school, college

and university chaplains and all those

whom offer pastoral support to schools, particularly the school pastors who spend time at our schools each week showing encouragement and love to the children. 

Give thanks for all those who work in our schools and pray that they will have a relaxing break. We also pray for families in poverty or for those who are suffering from addiction as the Christmas period can be an extremely difficult time. 

Pray for all those we support in our Missionary offerings throughout the year.  Give thanks for them and the work that they do in spreading the Good News.

Pray for Christians planning Christmas outreach events

to victims in Laos during the August’s

floods, which left thousands homeless. Many Lao people do

not celebrate Christmas. Pray

that these activities will share the light of Christ with them.

In these last days of 2019, take time to ‘recount the gracious deeds of the Lord’ over the months of this past year. Give thanks for memories and moments that come to mind. Give thanks for ‘the abundance of his steadfast love’. Praise Him who provides for us, loves us and carries us through stormy waters.

As we enter a new year, the challenges facing persecuted Christians have never been greater. Pray for wisdom for all Christian missionaries as they strengthen the persecuted church worldwide. Pray that more Christians across the UK and Ireland will be moved to pray for, support and speak out for their persecuted family.
