Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Ephesians 1 v3

It is not easy to grasp all that being blessed with every spiritual blessing really means. Let us pray for a fuller understanding and give thanks that it is wonderfully true.

    In these difficult financial times, pray that they will be given the wisdom and ability to respond with policies that will really benefit those in particular need

  • The war in Ukraine threatens to lead to food shortages in different parts of the world; but, for the people of that country, is about a lot more than food.
    Pray for Ukraine, its leadership and its people

    Pray for the ongoing work of translators as they seek to make God's word available in translations that people can readily understand

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
And if we know that he hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him.
