NBA Prayers for 21st July - Stocksfied Baptist Church (Tyne valley)
Give thanks for recent baptisms of new believers, especially for two Iranian young men on Easter Sunday.
Thank God for many signs of the life of the Holy Spirit amongst us: a new format for all-age worship which has been well received (by most!), a new inter-generational house group, a Chris Duffett-style 'Big Hearted' evangelism outreach, new members and new faces in the congregation on Sundays.
We are hosting and running a children's holiday club this week, from 22nd – 26th July, in partnership with other local churches. May God work powerfully through the programme and through it bring people to faith or into closer contact with him.
We are raising funds to undertake work on the church building, renovating toilets and providing better disabled access. Pray for generous giving and for the improved facilities to stimulate more mission opportunities.
We still face a great challenge to become more missional and to disciple one another well. Pray for the church, that we will embrace these challenges wholeheartedly.
Minister: Rev Paul Revill
