PRAYER DIARY

Let's Pray // 01 June 2020 - 06 June 2020

Pray for those who are sick, bereaved or just struggling with the strangeness of life at this time.

Please remember John Dickinson, (minister of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church) and  his family as they mourn the death,  on Friday past, of Christine , a much loved wife, mum and granny .

 

Due to the current unprecedented situation , this week sees an historic General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church , when a commission of 25 people will meet on “Zoom” over an  evening and 2 full days ( Monday – Wednesday) to conduct the routine business of the Assembly .  Some other aspects of the work will be deferred until, hopefully, a Special  General Assembly can meet , possibly later this year.

 

Pray for

the incoming Moderator, David Bruce, for his wife Zoe and their family, as David is installed as Moderator on Monday evening. Pray that the service will prove to be an uplifting moment for him and the wider church as he takes on this new role for the year.

 

the Clerk of the General Assembly, Rev Trevor Gribben and the Deputy Clerk, Rev Jim Stothers as they prepare themselves for meetings of the Standing Commission of the General Assembly during this week. Pray that even though the full General Assembly cannot meet, God will guide this Commission in its work.

 

the work of the Standing Commission determining ways forward on some essential items of business, and for wisdom in considering how the church may manage its work through the current restrictions.

 

those responsible for the management of the finances of the church, both treasurers in congregations and PCI’s Financial Secretary, Clive Knox and the Committees he supports.  Pray  that the financial capacity of the church to continue its work will not be curtailed during the current crisis.

 

the vital work of the Council for Social Witness, and specifically its work in Residential Homes which are vulnerable to COVID-19 infection. Give thanks for the dedicated and skilled work of staff in PCI’s care homes, and for their dedicated Christian witness.

 

the Holy Spirit to blow through the work of the General Assembly over these next few days and through our Presbyterian Church in Ireland now and always.
