Daily Prayer Chain

As we are shifting out of lockdown we felt it is time to change the prayer chain to focus on current issues, still with the sense of guarding from Nehemiah 4. We continue to encourage you as families and households to pray together into these areas.

Please refer to the pointers in prayer listed below for each day and contact the relevant lead person for these areas if you want more information about what to pray or if you want to share with them what God has been speaking and showing you while you’ve been praying.

Thank you all so much for rallying to the call to pray for one another in these unprecedented times!

Nehemiah 4:13-14
So I placed armed guards behind the exposed parts of the wall. I stationed the people to stand guard by families, armed with swords, spears, and bows. Then as I looked over the situation I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said: “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord who is great and glorious and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters and your wives, and your homes!”
