Please join with us in praying for The Bridge Battersea, led by Jason Roach…
Give thanks to God for:
- The Lord continuing to sustain us, and how we’ve generally seen the church draw together as a family rather than drift apart during lockdown.
- Members of the congregation giving up lots of time and effort to serve in new ways, like overseeing the weekly streamed service.
- The encouragement of a recent sermon series on heaven. Pray also that this would shape us as a church – helping us to be joyful in hope and patient in affliction, and to seek first his kingdom and his righteousness.
- The good cross-cultural relationships we enjoy as a multi-ethnic church family.
Please pray for:
- Gospel comfort in light of the recent tensions and unrest following the George Floyd tragedy, which has given many of us painful reminders and frustration at injustice.
- Us as a church to celebrate our diverse ethnic backgrounds and our togetherness as one in Christ, and be blessed by leaning into and enjoying each other’s cultures. Pray also we’d be salt and light as we witness to the estates around us.
- The conversions of those in frequent Bible contact with members of church.
- Those in our youth groups from non-church going families to be drawn to Christ, despite youth groups not being able to run as normal.
- Continued sustaining of those for whom lockdown is particularly hard.
