Prayer for persecuted People
This church has prayer concerns for persecuted people wherever they may be; people of all nationalities, people of any faith, or none.
We have recently been given an 'Amnesty Candle' by our Vicar, Revd Roni Goodman. The candle represents the suffering of persecuted people throughout the world, and is a focus for our prayer.
While the needs are great, we are not daunted, for this is God’s world.
So please join with us in prayer for those noted below. We welcome requests for persecuted people known to you.
We are currently focussing our prayers on Mercy - a 22 year old woman from Borneo state in North East Nigeria.
We thank God that Mercy is still alive, and for her willingness to talk about her experiences whilst imprisoned and tortured by Boko Haram.
Many other Christian women and girls have been taken from their towns and villages in Nigeria. They are made to watch multiple killings, forced into "marriage", and are compelled to convert to and follow Islam according to Boko Haram beliefs and rules.
Please join us in prayer:
Meanwhile Christians in Iran continue to face arrest, serious charges, and long periods of detention. Over the Christmas 2015 period, 24 arrests were recorded. Eleven remain in prison. Iranian Christians have asked us to pray that:
“Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
There's never been a better time to try these extremely popular products - a mouth watering display of wholefood and other fairly traded goods from the Daily Bread Co-operative is now on permanent display at St Michael's.
If you would like to receive a visit at home to receive Communion, for prayer, or for a chat, please ring:
- they will always be pleased to call.
Likewise, if you know of any who are in hospital or who are unwell at home, please let us know.
We have a Prayer Book available for prayer requests - you will find it on a small table in front of the Lady Chapel at the back of the church. Do feel free to use it - our church is open 7 days a week, and prayer requests from the book are included in our Sunday morning service prayers
