NBA Christmas Prayers 22nd December 2019

 Give thanks:
  • for the love of Christ which surmounts all political and racial divides.
  • for the message of hope and reconciliation we are commissioned to bring this Christmas.
  • for our church family which encourages and  supports us as we carry the Christmas message to our community.

Please pray that:

  • as one innkeeper provided shelter for Mary and Joseph, we may open our hearts and homes to the homeless this Christmas.
  • as the heavenly host brought the joyful message of salvation to lowly shepherds, we may carry the gospel to the poor and despised in our community.  
  • as the Holy family sought refuge in Egypt,we may seek to bring comfort to those who seek refuge from religious and political persecution in our country.
