Prayer Diary from the Guild Office

A Prayer Diary from the Guild Office

Pray this week
Monday: asking God to challenge you, to speak to you today and not allow you to live in the past
Tuesday: for the people in your street, those you know well and those who are not as well known to you
Wednesday: asking God to give you opportunities to show creative hospitality to others, and to do it joyfully and without grumbling
Thursday: for CrossReach staff who have been serving selflessly over the last 12 weeks. Asking God to walk with them and encourage them
Friday: for peace and reconciliation between Israel and Palestine
Saturday: for families with young children as they spend more time outdoors and with family in the coming weeks
Sunday: for our Church of Scotland mission partners, both those at home on furlough and those still based overseas

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.
Since its start in May 2016, just three and a half years ago, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. In 2019 Christians from 172 countries took part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.

Thy Kingdom Come  Please click on link and you will find details of the Daily Prayer for Thy Kingdom Come and other resources.

Pick up a copy of the Prayer Journal and the Family Adventure Map – they are in a poly bag behind the Church wall beside the Blue sign.  Please feel free to take a copy.

Christian Aid

Christian Aid Week like everything else is very different this year.  Normally Pat Aitken and her team of volunteers post Christian Aid envelopes through the doors of everyone in Braco and Greenloaning and the generosity of our communities have raised large sums of money to be distributed to provide life saving support for some of the poorest families in the world.
