Church Prayer – New Song Network

This was written just after Easter which, of cause, is still in our minds. We would like continued prayer for all those children who came to the Easter egg hunt and especially those from whom Easter had previously been just about chocolate eggs and bunnies. We prayer for their families and the continuing contact we may have with them. Please pray too for the changes in the NS leadership team and the future plans that New Song has to further the Kingdom. We also hold in prayer those going through difficult and stressful times – anxiety seems to be something affecting a lot of people and we pray that God holds us close as we struggle with whatever is currently affecting us. Every situation is different but is of equal value so we pray for the strength to cope. Pray for our minister Revd. Linda Bishop and her ministry.
