Give thanks that in Christ the church is God’s building, God’s temple. Pray that we would realise that more and more so that we might indulge in fewer comparisons and turn away from jealousy. Pray that Trinity would be a church that is united in Christ not divided by differences that are levelled out in Him.
Pray for those families at Trinity where children have recently started new schools. Pray children and parents alike would know God goes with them into the ups and downs of a new environment. Pray they would increasingly depend on God in prayer in tiredness, stress and with any fears. And pray that children would be able to form good friendships and start to settle in.
Storycorner meets this morning – 10-11.30am (Story: Joshua and Jericho)
Give thanks that God is a great big God. Give thanks that though he is awesome and holy he loves and knows us intimately. Praise him that he loves us so much that he sent his Son to die, that we might not perish. Pray we’d be able to make this good news known among the local area in lots of different ways. Pray that many would come to know God through Christ, so he would be glorified in this part of Islington.
Small groups start again tonight. 7.30pm for food, 8pm start. (Micah 1:1-16)
Give thanks that God is a speaking God. Pray we would listen to well to him as hear from Micah 1:1-16 this evening. Pray that Trinity would be full of people who long to be challenged by God’s word and who seek to sharpen and build one another up by it. Pray that God would be building his church as we meet together.
Pray for the many refugees around the world who have fled their unsafe homelands. Pray that God would protect them as they seek places to settle. And pray that churches and Christians (Trinity included) might be those who extend their resources and Christ’s compassion to help those who have faced unimaginable horrors.
Funday 2-4pm. Meeting together this afternoon to look at 1 Corinthians 3 – 4.30pm
Pray that the Spirit would cause us to see the ways we might boast or long to boast in ‘men’ rather than Christ. Pray as we meet together this afternoon that Trinity would be a church that is united in Christ rather than ruled by divisions.
Pray for the Family Funday taking place in Myddelton Square Gardens tomorrow. Pray that it would be a great opportunity to reach out into the local community. Pray that God would bring many along to the Funday and to church afterwards.
