Praise God For Who He is

The Apostle Paul said to Timothy, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Tim 1:15-17). Give thanks that Christ came into the world to save sinners, that he has shown us patience, grace, and mercy. Pray that we would live for the glory of our King Jesus. 

Pray for the World

Iran. As we continue to pray for Muslim countries during this season of Ramadan, pray for Iran. Pray for greater political, social, and religious freedoms in this country. Give thanks that despite persecution and many restrictions on proclaiming the gospel, many Iranians are turning to Jesus. Currently, the Iranian church is one of the fastest growing in the world. Pray for the raising up of godly leaders, for the perseverance of Iranian Christians and for their joyful witness for the hope that they have in Jesus.

Ukraine. Continue to pray for a peaceful end to this war. Pray that the current large scale assault by Russian forces in the east would not be successful, and that sanctions against Russia would be effective. Pray for healing for the injured, comfort for the grieving, protection for the innocent, provision for the refugee, and for justice to be done. Continue to pray for the perseverance and witness of Christians in Ukraine.

Hong Kong

Pray for those who are especially vulnerable in HK; for the homeless and those without adequate housing. Pray for charities and NGOs like ‘St Barnabas’ Society and Home’ and for the ‘Hong Kong Church Network for the Poor’, who seek to care for those without adequate housing and raise awareness of the needs of the poor; pray for their provision so that they can meet the needs of those in their care; and that the love of Christ would be known. 

St Andrew’s

Children’s ministry. Give thanks for the opportunities that we have to teach and encourage our children in the faith. Pray that God’s word would be faithfully taught by teachers and leaders in Kidzone and at Friendship Garden Playgroup. Pray that faith will grow in our children’s hearts, as they learn at church and as Christ is taught and modelled in our homes.

Youth ministry. Give thanks for our Youth ministry, for Ian and the leaders who give their time and wisdom. Pray that our youth would hear God’s word faithfully taught, that God would grow faith, helping the youth to prioritise Jesus and learn to follow him; and that God would awaken faith in those who don’t yet know Jesus, helping them to make Jesus their Saviour.

Parents. Pray for parents at St Andrew’s as they seek to raise their children in the love and knowledge of Jesus. Pray that our homes can be places of prayer, bible reading, and spiritual discussions. Pray that parents are able to model to their children what it looks like to prioritize Jesus and to commit all our ways to the Lord.
