Renewed call to persevere in prayer across Baptist churches in the UK

13 January 2021

From the Baptist Union of Great Britain Website - you are invited to share and join in:

As Covid-19 threatens to overwhelm our health service and continues to inflict pain and loss, we stand together with many others and renew our commitment to sustained prayer.

You may like to join virtually with friends to pray, perhaps in small groups or as a wider congregation. You might like to spend time in solitude praying for our nation at this time of crisis.

Here are some pointers to help you and your friends as you pray. These have been written by a senior A&E nurse in a large teaching hospital:

  • Pray for all the NHS staff for their own safety, energy and peace in dealing with each and every patient.
  • Pray for those in hospital leadership, for wisdom and for good decisions to give the best outcomes for patients.
  • Pray for patients; for healing, for peace and ultimately to fight this disease and get home and pray for their relatives who feel helpless.
  • Pray for the vaccine, that it will and is working against this latest strain of Covid-19.
  • Pray for a reprieve and an end to Covid-19.

You may know people who are currently working in the NHS in your area, please let them know you are praying for them and ask them how you can pray specifically.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
