Need Help

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.

There are also opportunities for you to come and talk, even if it's only about the weather, at our Warm Rooms afternoon or our Saturday Coffee morning.

Warm Rooms

Thursday afternoons, 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Saturday mornings, 10:00am - 11:30am

Please join us for free refreshments, conversation, access to our wifi and heating.

There will always be someone to talk and pray with you, if required, at these times.

Weekly Prayer Letter

Prayer Diary For Week Commencing

Sunday 16th

 June 2024

Please pray about the floods in southern Florida.  I am not sure whether anybody has been killed but cars have been wrecked and property flooded due to up to 20 inches of rain in 24 hours.  As I write this there is a threat of more floods due to the storms still being in the area.

 

Please pray about the ongoing cease fire plan between Gaza and Israel.  It is hanging in the balance whether both sides will accept it.  Pray that the present discussions will lead to a ceasefire.  Pray for all the countries trying to broker a deal particularly USA and Qatar where the talks are taking place.

 

Please pray about the delays in cancer treatment in this country that are probably leading to people dying that should have recovered.  It is estimated that these delays are due to a 30% shortage in radiologists and a 15% shortage in cancer specialists.

 

Please pray about the awful situation in Kuwait where an accommodation block caught fire and 49 people died. 40 of these were immigrant workers from India and it is thought that 50 more Indians were injured.

 

Please pray about the risk of Dengue fever in Europe.  This is a mosquito carried disease that has recently spread to countries including France and Spain.  It has been suggested that this is due to global warming. Many people, with this disease, have very little or mild symptoms but a few have severe symptoms including severe headache and fever that needs immediate treatment.  In rare cases people die of this disease.  In some parts of Europe people are being encouraged to use mosquito nets.  Pray that this disease will not get to this country.

 

Please pray about the recent stabbing in the Duke of York gardens in Grimsby. 

Pray that there will be no more stabbings like this in our town and pray for all those involved.  Pray that people will not carry knives.

 

Please pray for our preachers who are preaching next Sunday.

Pray for the preparation as well as the service.

Susan Chambers taking a Communion service at Tetney and then the evening service

at Side Door, Patrick Mickleburgh taking a Communion service with us at Scartho,

Lester Kitching at St. Christopher’s and Inga Greet at North Thoresby.

 

Please pray for the church in Tajikistan, a country in the centre of Asia.  Although Islam is the religion of 94% of the population, only a small fraction practice "pure" Islam.  Most are more influenced by folk superstitions and Zoroastrian beliefs.  Mosques sprouted up everywhere in the years following independence, but now the government places severe restrictions on mosque building.  Tajikistan's proximity to Iran and Afghanistan makes it vulnerable to extreme Islamists.  Pray for this to be restrained.  The number of Christians are less than 1% of the population partly because many have left the country.  Pray that more people in this country will come to know Christ.
