Seven days of prayer: New and retiring members

December 24th, 2016 by Camilla

Prayers for 25th – 31st December

  • Thank God for the birth of Jesus – also thank God that many more people can read about the birth of Jesus through the translated New Testaments that have been launched during the past year.

This week we pray for our new and retiring members:

  • Ask that God would be able to use the skills and experience that John and Ruth Hamilton have gained through their years with Wycliffe to continue to serve his church worldwide. Pray that during their retirement they will be able to enjoy the family God has given them and the world God has created for us to live in.
  • Pray for the adjustment that Liz Olsen needs to make now that her identity as a missionary with Wycliffe is coming to an end. Pray for a new field of service for the Lord through her home church.
  • MEDION DIGITAL CAMERAPray for Richard Lee, that having found a very suitable flat in north Norfolk to live in during his retirement, he now needs to put down roots. Please also pray for various health problems to ease. Pray also for Richard and his siblings as they keep an eye on their mother (aged 90) who is now happily living in a care home.
  • Pray for guidance for Rachel Robinson as to where she should go for her overseas assignment in 2017. Rachel is interested in francophone Africa but is open to other ideas. Ask God to make it clear where he is calling her to serve.
  • Pray that the Lord will help Sharon Dennis to raise the necessary prayer and financial support. Pray also that God will guide her to the location where she will be best able to serve.
  • New Year’s Eve is an all-night prayer meeting for many believers in Senegal. Pray for them as they meet together and seek God’s blessing over their lives and seek wisdom in how God can be glorified in Senegal over the year to come.
