Prayer points for July - August 2011

BBC step focus – “Step on – towards Maturity” 
Give great thanks for the Church Weekend – but be in prayer for our response to the challenge of a dangerous Jesus!

Pastoral Team (more details from Chris Sheldrake)

-          Please keep this small team in your prayers, asking for His protection
-          Pray that the team can show God’s heart to those in need, whatever that need may be - being His hands and feet in Burlington and the wider church family.

Summer Activities

-          Pray that we will use the opportunities the summer presents (e.g. Soul Survivor) to be refreshed in body, mind and spirit and spread the Gospel message

Project Ruth

-          Continue to pray for preparations for the October Mission trip. The team will be fully involved in English teaching, creative sessions etc.
-          Pray that God will sustain this outreach to the local gyspy community and enable all those involved to be motivated by His love for those in their care
