John Craib – Low Moss Prison
Give thanks for the good team we have providing chaplaincy in Low Moss prison. We are good friends and work easily together despite the variety of backgrounds. Pray that we might be open to pray more together despite those differences.
Please pray also for our interaction with prisoners that they would be meaningful, helpful and life changing, fitting within the Scottish Prison Service strapline ‘Unlocking potential, transforming lives’. Please pray for our CEO, Colin McConnell, who has a heart to see radical change in our prisons and a reduction in reoffending by embracing that principle that change is possible. He has come under fire in pursuing that approach from inside and out. Please pray for protection for him and his family.
Bridge Prayer Points
Give thanks to God for all he has done in our church in the past year.
Pray for our upcoming Alpha Course, in particular for the attendees.
Pray for wisdom as we examine new opportunities in the community.
Pray for the many in our neighbourhood who have lost jobs in the current oil downturn.
Bridge of Don
Praise our Lord for our new coffee shop. ‘Striders’ was set up in August 2016 after Aberdeen City Council approached our church to use the car park as a Park & Stride for our local primary school. Pray for the many folks who are already engaging with the church through this venture and for the Holy Spirit to direct our next steps as we look to develop this ministry further.
Bristo Baptist Church
We give thanks for a very successful Christmas outreach with all of our services, activities and events well attended. Many new relationships were established and previous contacts were strengthened. We have also had a number of people join the membership recently.
Please pray that God will give us wisdom to know how to keep deepening relationships and that we will be given opportunities to share the Good News.
