Some thoughts for prayer

October Prayer Focus.

 

Giving Thanks 

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

This month we want to take the time to stop, pause, reflect. To focus on all that God in his amazing love and great mercy has given us at Fetteresso. 

As God’s family in Fetteresso we can look back and see God’s hand at work amongst us over many years. There is SO much to give thanks for.......

 

For our forebears who prayed things into being

The provision of land and building

Pastors to lead us

Music and those skilled in playing and singing as they lead us in praise. 

We give thanks for 45 years of faithful service of Ian Gillis as organist and choir master

For those who prayed for us, taught us and guided us

For the vision and outworking of Here and Now coffee shop and book shop

For the vision and continued work of Far and Wide and the Food Bank

For our children, young people and each other 

For Matt our youth worker

For all the times we met and shared fellowship with each other

For those we love and miss whom we cannot meet with right now 

For those we love who have gone from us now

For new provision and those to come.....

 

For our town and community

For our schools and teachers

Our counsellors, dentists, doctors, nurses

For our bin men and gardeners 

For our shops and tradesmen 

For our fishermen and farmers

Our community groups.....

 

For our homes and families 

For friends and neighbours

For our daily bread 

For work and rest 

Our beautiful landscape 

For changing seasons.....

 

For life

For freedom

For good times and bad 

For change

For God’s word 

For prayer heard, answered, awaiting

The list goes on.....

And in all of it Gods Amazing Love and Grace made manifest in Christ our Saviour.......

 ....our Salvation! 

What can you add? For what or for whom do you want to give thanks? 

Let us be a people of thankfulness to our Mighty God who never leaves us nor forsakes us and who alone is worthy of our Praise. 

Thanks be to God!
