NBA Prayers for Pentecost (8th June)


  • for the work of God's Spirit in so many ways across our Association, in people coming to faith and being baptised; in new mission initiatives; in provision of needs; in new life in many of our churches.
  • for the ministry of John Claydon, and the opportunity for rest and refreshing as he takes two months' Sabbatical.
  • for the number of young people that have already booked for Kairos Christian youth camp this summer. 
  • for the opportunity to grow in prayer and relationship together as we engage in the Season of Prayer in September.


  • for Paul as he covers for John in his absence while still finding his feet as Mission Enabler for the Association.
  • as we are challenged by the Baptist Union to help mobilise missional pioneers, that God will raise up such people in our region and the resources needed, to enable us to plant new churches and new forms of church across the North East.
  • for Rachael Ezra as she serves on the team planning Kairos and fulfilling other duties within the churches in our region.
  • for a deepening of our sense of belonging to a wider Baptist family, expressed in growing friendships, prayer support and resourcing one another for ministry and mission.
