NBA Prayers for 3rd December - Easington Lane IMC (near Houghton-le-Spring)

we had to say goodbye to our Senior Minister, Mr Syd Grey, who was called to glory on 27th July. We greatly miss his presence and his wisdom. Please pray for his wife Mary and his family as they adjust to life without his physical presence. However, we praise and thank God for His faithfulness, and the rich times of blessings we have shared together.


Over the year we have engaged in various out-reach events, which included 2 leaflet drops around the village. Although we didn't have great numbers attending the special events, there was always a few who were not regular attenders of the church. Please join with us to pray that the seed that was planted will one day grow.


It is a time of change for our church. After 36 years as President, Mr Harold Watson, through ill-health has had to stand down.  As part of his service to God, Harold has served this church well during his years of office. Please pray for Harold and his wife Millie, that their health will improve so that they will soon be able to share in fellowship with us again.


Please pray for our new President Jean Merton, that God will give her the wisdom she will need to fulfil the duties of President.


Pray also for our Student Minister, Kay White. Kay has to fit her studies around looking after her family, which includes 3 children under the age of 11 years, working part-time and fulfilling various commitments she already has within the church. Pray that God will give her the skill she needs and the ability to use her time wisely. As a church may we give her the support she needs, and uphold her in prayer at all times.


Please pray that we will all work together as a team, and look to God for guidance and direction, and for the courage to follow and be obedient to Him, so that as a church we will be used to share the Gospel message in our locality, in the hope that lives will be changed and God's Kingdom extended.

President: Jean Merton
