NBA Prayers for the Association - 21st Decembe

Praise God for:

The wonder of His love revealed in Jesus – 'the Word made flesh'.

The joy, wonder and peace, that is at the heart of the Christmas message.

The unique opportunities for sharing the good news at this Christmas time through services and events.

The support and encouragement we find in our Association life and for the recent National Teams Retreat that was a time of renewal and refreshment for all involved.



That God's Spirit may enable people to receive the message of Jesus, who is Emmanuel, and look afresh to him.

For those who will find Christmas a difficult and challenging time that they may know something of God's love and goodness.

For Paul to be used missionally within Prudhoe as he and his family settle into their new home.

That God may deepen our relationships and commitment together within the north and as part of our national family, and for the deepening of relationships between and across our churches as we move into 2015.
