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 16th August 2020
"I pray… that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. … May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." John 17: 20 – 23 NIV.
Please pray for those being made redundant, because of Coronavirus on UK businesses, that they will be successful in finding employment elsewhere soon. The country is in a recession and many will be having difficulties with mortgages, rents and food bills.
Can we help by supporting foodbanks etc?
Please pray for students receiving their exam results and their families. Pray that the results will be fair and enable the students to progress successfully to the next stage of their education. Also let’s pray for teachers and those employed in education as they prepare to receive the children in a new, safe environment.
Please pray for the just and compassionate treatment of migrants, fleeing war and starvation, often at the mercy of unscrupulous traffickers.
Please pray for the Open Doors organisation. So many of our Christian brothers and sisters are persecuted for their belief in Jesus. It is a non-denominational mission supporting persecuted Christians in over 70 countries. Open Doors' stated aims are to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians from around the world.
Please pray for the Church Council on Tuesday 18th August. May God give wisdom and guide the decision making especially regarding starting worship in church.
Please pray for farmers and those working in agriculture harvesting currently.
The Coronavirus pandemic is making it difficult. Thank God for Traidcraft supporting farmers like Chelagat, a smallholder in Kenya, who said, "I was planting onions and needed 3 casual labourers. But due to the restrictions and because people are fearing being infected, I could only work with my husband and children. It took us 5 days to plant instead of 2 days." (Traidcraft Exchange Leaflet).
Please pray for the families grieving because of the train disaster in Aberdeenshire.
We pray that those injured may make a healthy recovery.
Today in the Methodist Prayer Handbook, we pray for Methodist brothers and sisters in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Ireland. (To get the 2020/21 Prayer Handbook go to www.methodistpublishing.org.uk £4.50). We pray for the Church’s work in Sri Lanka to bring peace, reconciliation and social justice and for its work in rural villages and plantation communities.
Please pray for the love of God to surround and uphold Patrick and Tim Mickleburgh.
