NBA Prayers for 2nd December (Advent)

At this time of year, as we focus on God's promises, the hope he gives us through the coming of Christ and the need to be prepared for his coming, please pray...

 

1. That all of our churches will be used well by God to share the hope we have in Christ, both in the events, services and activities we organise together and in our individual witness amongst those in our families, work colleagues and circles of friends.

 

2. For Jesus to come amongst us afresh in greater presence and power and work through us to bring transformation in our communities.  May we see more of the coming of God's Kingdom in this Advent season.

 

3. In an age when so much of our national life and culture has become secularised and materialistic, pray that as Christians we are able to live counter-culturally, not to get caught up in the stresses and pressures of the season; to use the money God has given us in his service to help those in genuine need and for us to make a difference to the vulnerable, lonely, isolated and needy in our communities.

NBA Prayers for 25th November - West View Baptist Church (Hartlepool)

Our main focus over the last 18 months or so has been running a community meal on Fridays, serving people from the estate with a free meal. This has been going really well and each week we serve around 50 or more meals. There are many that come regularly and over this time many relationships have been built with people from the estate. Please pray that relationships would continue to grow and that through us God would draw people to himself. Pray too for all those who work so hard to make it possible.


We are also encouraged by some recent additions to our fellowship who have moved into the area and begun to get involved in church life. So we give thanks for new friends with whom we can share in this ministry. Pray they would know God's blessing as they make Hartlepool their home.


Pray too for the church's financial situation. Our minister Tim Hyde has been with us for nearly 8 years on a part time basis up to now, but this year has reduced to 25% stipend in order to make the books balance.  Prayer for guidance and provision both for the church and for Tim in the coming year.


Miinister: Rev Tim Hyde

NBA Prayers for 28th October - The Filipiono International Church

We thank the Lord for the TFIC and for full support on our latest activities and programs for this month. These were the October Praise 2018 (held at Westgate Baptist Church), the Life Goals 2nd Session of the Young Professionals (at Cowgate Golf Club) and the coming Youth Camp on Oct 29-Nov. 1, 2018. They had made sacrifices for these events.

 

Please help us in our prayer for a building as our permanent place of worship, where we could freely worship without any complaints from neighbours about drums and other musical instruments. We are eyeing the newly closed church in Wallsend, but the process would take time and how to purchase it is another thing.

 

We thank the Lord for Wallsend Baptist Church, for accommodating us in their place and extended our contract for another 3 months, though there are some complaints from neighbours. 

 

We do pray for our neighbours to have patience and understanding of the freedom of worship in this country and may we maintain the good relationship with them and understand them as Christians and followers of Christ.


Minister: Rev Virgilio Pansacala
