NBA Prayers for 30th June 2019

Give thanks for the Holy Spirit working within us and amongst us, enabling us to serve Jesus where ever he places us.
Pray for those who give themselves fully to the work of the church, while also having many other demands on their lives; that they might have wisdom, so as not to put too much strain on themselves.
Give thanks for the primary schools in the area that give wonderful educational opportunities to the children of the community, and are open to people going into them and telling the stories of the Bible.
Pray for the wellbeing of the community, that all may be valued, not for what they have achieved, but because they are persons created in God's image.
