Prayer Diary For Week Commencing

Sunday 1st March 2020

 

"Rejoice always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18.

 

Please continue to pray for those that are affected by the Coronavirus in various parts of the world.  Remember those that are trapped in the hotel in Tenerife and cannot go home at the moment.  Also pray for Northern Italy where many people have been affected by the virus.  Pray for that the authorities of the countries of the world will know how to overcome this disease.

 

Please continue to pray for all those that are affected by the ongoing problems with floods in this country.  Remember those who have had their homes flooded who have lost so much.  Also pray for the people that are scared of more floods affecting their homes.  The weather forecast for the next week or so is saying that there is going to be more rain.

 

Please pray about the riots in India.  They started over a controversial immigration bill but are now turning into violence between the different religious groups especially militant Hindus attacking the Muslims.  Pray for all those that have lost loved ones in the riots.

 

As the government announces more help for rough sleepers, please pray for those who have to live on the street for various reasons.  Pray that this problem may be dealt with satisfactorily so that people do not live in such terrible conditions, particularly at this time of year.

 

Please pray about the illegal use of drugs.  In 2018 4,300 people died, in the UK, due to this.  There is a European conference about this problem going on in Glasgow.  Pray that people will not be attracted to these drugs and will realise the danger to themselves and their families.

 

Please pray for the Christians in Bangladesh.  The Church is growing faster than the population but there has not been any real revival in this country. The extreme Islamists (a small minority in the country) are pushing for more and more stringent measures by the government to control other religions.  People are being forced to rejoin the Muslims.  Pressure sometimes includes damage to property or even occasionally murder.
