God and Father, As we hear of many people from our Braes area who will lose their jobs at Ineos in 2025, we cry to you for help. We pray that every one of these workers will be sustained by you over coming months and will experience peace and freedom from worry. We pray that many will seek you perhaps because of this difficult situation and will realise that you are the one who truly understands and sympathises. Lord, we think too of the local contractors whose businesses will be affected by this terrible situation and we remember their workforce who may also lose their jobs. Please will you bring in your comforts and wisdom from above as these Braes folk make major decisions about what to do next and will you help their families who support them. We pray that other opportunities may open up for all those affected. In this hard situation, we praise you, dear Father, that you are able to do far more than we can even imagine. Amen ...

At the last session of a 1-1 discipleship course I've been doing (I had the idea for this prayer before Rev Scott plugged the course during yesterday's sermon!), we covered being filled with the Holy Spirit and have suggested prayers each day. Today, I'm going to start by using these prayers!
Holy Spirit, please fill me afresh today and bless me with your presence. Holy Spirit, empower me to love the people I interact with today in the way that You would love. Holy Spirit, strengthen me to walk in obedience and holiness today. Holy Spirit, teach me to pray according to Your plan and purpose. Holy Spirit, enable me to be a bold witness for Jesus.
Fill my heart again, Holy Spirit, and burn like fire within me. Holy Spirit, guide me, teach me and be my Advocate. Holy Spirit, cause God's Word to come alive in me today. Holy Spirit, fall afresh on me and breathe new life on me
Gracious Father, We pray for the released hostages in the Middle East and for the continuation of the peace process. There is a darkness in the world, Lord, a brooding evil. May your light shine upon it and rid it from the lives of the innocent people of Israel and Palestine. These things we ask, in Jesus’ name. Amen ... See MoreSee Less
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the wealth of wisdom from the book of Proverbs in Your Holy Bible. Help me to apply it to my life in all my daily affairs. Lord, may I always be sincere and honest in my relationships with others. Give me a gentle and understanding heart toward those who do not know You, so that my life and prayers will affect them, and bring them to the knowledge of Your dear Son. Fill me with the Holy Spirit today, so that all whom I come in contact with will sense Your presence. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.🙏🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
Our God and Father, As we see house prices and rents soar even here in our place called Braes, we commend to you those who are struggling to find accommodation. We pray that government will soon legislate to ensure that the greed of property owners and landlords will no longer prevent families or single people from having a home. Lord, we look to you, the one who loved to visit the homes of people when you were here on this earth and we think how you were given shelter and hospitality by those who had homes. So many life-changing encounters with you took place, not just on the street or in the countryside, but in the homes of individuals who invited you in. Lord, may this be so even in our day, in our place called Braes. May there be homes right here where you are welcomed and where your Spirit dwells. Amen ... See MoreSee Less
"Your Name is a light that the shadows can't deny Your Name cannot be overcome Your Name is alive, forever lifted high Your Name cannot be overcome"
Father God, We come before Your throne, giving thanks and all our adoration for Your Son, Jesus. He is the greatest and highest Name that is. He is the Name above every other name. We rejoice that His Name cannot be overcome and nothing can overcome or defeat Him. We pray that His light and power would shine into every person in the Braes area, into every household and into every situation. We pray that His light, His power over death and His healing power would alleviate people that are ill, both physically and mentally; encourage people especially those with low self-esteem and low in confidence; strengthen people that are feeling weary; help those who are feeling stressed and heavy-burdened. In Jesus' powerful and mighty Name
Our God and Father, As we hear of good things happening in S.U. (Scripture Union) groups in Braes schools, we want to commit these groups to you for blessing. We are grateful that schools in this area are open to having an S.U. group and we pray this may continue. We pray for those who run the groups, the S.U. volunteers who give up their time, and we pray they will be strengthened and encouraged in this work. We pray for the children themselves that they will learn much about you and come to know you and follow you early in their lives. Father, we pray for young Christians in school, perhaps lonely and feeling isolated because of their faith. Lord, will you be near them and will you open up a way for them to attend an S.U. group where they can meet others like themselves. And Father, we give thanks that there is such an organisation as S.U., enabling and resourcing us to tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord. Amen ... See MoreSee Less
Help us not to worry about the rest of today, not to worry about tomorrow and not to be worried about things in our lives. Help us to share our burdens with You and pass them on placing them into Your hands.
