Many times, we feel that we need a little extra help, maybe a situation we cannot cope with – a bereavement, a time of illness, a stressful situation at work – and the list goes on.
At Scartho Methodist Church we believe that talking and prayer has helped many people and can help you.
We have many opportunities for prayer during our services and people who will pray with you in a smaller group, or one-to-one, following a service. Private prayer is available in our dedicated prayer room. Alternatively, we have prayer meetings each month on the first and third Saturdays at 9am.
Our regular prayer letter, which helps our congregation to pray for local, national and international situations can be found below.
You can request prayer by placing your prayer request in the box near the church gate, or by using the prayer request form at the bottom of the page.
Weekly Prayer Letter
Prayer Diary For Week Commencing
Sunday 3rd July 2022
"Jesus said – "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."" Mark 11: 24 NIV.
Please pray about our church possibly providing activities for children during the school holidays.
Please continue to pray about the rising number of Covid cases. This is particularly affecting our part of the country.
Please pray about the shortage of transport workers. One of the main causes of this is people finding other jobs when they were laid off during Covid. This shortage has caused a lack of bus drivers in Grimsby. Industry is working hard to train people as replacements. Airline pilots will take a considerable time (at least some years) to replace.
Please pray about the problems in our health service because of a shortage of GPs. It is thought that within a few years a quarter of posts will be empty.
Please pray for our farmers, particularly our arable farmers. Some are probably going to go bankrupt because of rising prices. Because of rising fertiliser costs some are no longer growing wheat for people to eat, just growing it for animal food.
Please pray about the effects that inflation is having in our country. The head of the Bank of England says that it is worse in our countries than others. Pray particularly for the poor in our country who are struggling to feed themselves at this time.
Please pray about the heat wave in Japan. Not only is it affecting the people but it is now causing power cuts, making things worse.
Please continue to pray about the war in Ukraine. Experts are now saying that it is likely to continue for some years. Pray that this is not so and peace will come again to that country.
Please pray about the stabbings and other violence that seems so widespread in our country. Continue to pray that people will not feel that they have got to carry knives to protect themselves (particularly young people).
Please continue to pray for revival in our country, that people will turn back to God and our churches will start to fill again.
Please pray for the Church in Latvia. Latvia is one of the small Baltic states that used to be part of Russia. It has been ruled by the Germans, Danes, Poles, Swedes and Russians since the middle ages. It was briefly independent from Russia from 1917 to 1940. The church was severely persecuted under both the Germans and the Russians. It is the now the poorest country in the EU. The main problem for the church is that although many claim allegiance to the church this is not lived out in ordinary life. Pray that this trend might be reversed. Lastly, praise God that there is considerable unity between churches.
