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 27th September 2020
"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100: 4 – 5 NIV.
Please pray about the effect that deforestation is having on global warning. Pray that people will realise that this is important. Pray especially for countries, such as Brazil that will not do anything about it. Brazil is promoting clearance.
Please pray about the situation in Belarus, where many people think that the recent election, that re-elected the President to power, was rigged. Pray that the government of that country will stop using draconian measures to stop peaceful protests. Pray that the President will step down if the election was unfair.
Please pray that the election later this year in USA will not only be fair but be seen to be fair and be accepted by all parties.
Please pray about the effects that Brexit will have on this country as we finish leaving the
EU at the end of the year. Continue to pray for a fair outcome of the discussions on trade.
Also pray that industry will be prepared for it.
Please pray for our government at this time as it has to take action about the effect of
Covid-19 and Brexit. Pray that God will give them wisdom to handle both difficult issues.
Please pray that people will obey the rules, both existing and new ones, that are in place to control Covid-19 infections. Pray that everyone will take the Covid-19 situation seriously.
Continue to pray for the effect that Covid-19 is having on industry. Some firms have already gone out of business and others are on the edge. Pray that as few jobs as possible will disappear.
Please continue to pray about the tests to check that various inoculations against the
Covid-19 virus are safe and effective. Pray that several will prove to be effective and safe. Also pray that manufacturers will be able be able to quickly produce the vaccines in large amounts.
Please pray for the Church in Chile. Traditionally this country has been a Catholic country, but the Catholic church has been disestablished for many years and is now shrinking because of suspected past political links. The Pentecostal Methodist Church is the
2nd largest. Other churches have no real unity and split regularly over little things.
