Prayer Diary March 2020

Moncreiff Parish Church


Prayer Diary

The Church is wherever God’s people are praising,

knowing they’re wanted and loved by their Lord.

The Church is wherever Christ’s followers are trying

to live and to share out the good news of God.”


Hymn 522 v 1


“… there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.”


Romans 8 v 39

1st        “You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance; you have taken away my sorrow and surrounded me with joy.”

            Psalm 30 v 11


2nd        Healing Lord, we pray today for all who are involved in the current corona virus health emergency – those infected and those caring for them.

3rd        We bring before you Amnesty International and its work in Idlib in Syria where the crisis is so great.

4th        Thank you, Lord, for all who work with the hungry and homeless.  Give them strength as they daily strive to ameliorate the situations they find.

7th        Dear Lord, be close to all who are living with the effects of last month’s floods.  Give them strength and courage to face what lies ahead.
