Prayer Wall

Jesus Christ gave us a perfect example of prayer, in the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ and although his life was a hectic one he still found time to pray; and that one to one with God is something that we should value for ourselves.

There are many reasons why we pray; for example when we are troubled, or have to make a big decision. When someone we know is sick or dying and we want to talk to God about their illness. Perhaps we might want to pray for the Peace of the World and so it goes on. But, we might also use pray as an opportunity to thank God for our lives and for sending His Son to redeem the whole World.

Whoever or whatever you want to pray about, be it a large prayer request or just a little one, you may post it on here and we will join it with the many requests we receive daily in Church. It will be offered to God.


Please pray for the soul of Gill Hopkins and give thanks for her many acts of kindness. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Would you kindly pray that two ladies whose names I don't know, and whom I have no contact with, would you kindly pray that they would both have a revelation of Jesus's wonderful grace towards them?

Thanks so much, you are richly blessed by God.
