Prayers for This Year


OUR COMMISSION

Our Lord's great commission was to send us out into the world to make disciples of all peoples, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. This we seek to do with love and care.

Worship Together

There is the danger that we would favour one minister against another, and so stay away.

Paul strongly condemns this. Remember that we are here to worship God not man.

Throughout the year we shall have many different speakers and leaders of worship: Pray for them all. Invite friends and neighbours to share Sunday afternoons with you, at church.


Fellowship Together

Come to events and services whether here or at other Churches. Whilst we may have strongly held beliefs as Baptists, We have much in common with other Christian faiths and need to share our love of Jesus with them.


Mission Together

Part of our mission to the village is telling others about Jesus: Do this by inviting others to come with you to church or other events: Making the love of God known by what you do and say.


Above all remember your commitment to God.

When you became a member of this part of His Church in Hockley Heath you made promises and gave commitments both to Him and to fellow Christians.



Prayer for The New Year


Creator God

at the start

of this New Year

when thoughts turn again

to beginnings

starting afresh

new leaves

and turning skeletons

free from cupboards

be with us

as we gaze into the distance

of fresh mission grounds

of hopes and dreams

opportunities for service

challenges

and uncertainties

Take our fears

and turn them into strengths

Take our lack of faith

and empower us

through the Spirit

who breathes life into this world

whose presence is reflected

in the icy chill

of winter's breath

as well as the comforting warmth

of a summer breeze.

Walk with us into this New Year

of opportunity
