Prayer List

THIS WEEKS PRAYER LIST

 

‘Come let us anew our Journey pursue...’

Can we remember in our prayers during this first week of the New Year.....

1) Jean & George Horton. They have both been frequently on our prayer list over the past months. Recently however (in addition to her asthma & other issues) Jean tested COVID positive  - while George continues with his heart & chest problems.

2) Carol Swann. Most people will know Carol and John (whom we often affectionately refer to as ‘Big John’!) . They are members at Mill St.  but regularly worship with us when Mill St. has no services. Carol has been in hospital for over a week following a mild heart attack. Our love & prayers go out to Carol...&  an understandably very worried John.

3)Roddy Fry. Housebound following broken hip & wrist - but sent yesterday to Stafford hospital  with severely swollen & infected feet.

On the Circuit front we pray for:-

1) Terry Trigg.  Admitted to New Cross with heart difficulties. We understand  they are seeking to determine whether to deal with it with stent or even more serious surgery. Please keep Terry and Carol & family in your prayers.

2) Christine Tait  & her family. Chris is a member of our Bethel Church who has been on our prayer list regularly in the past -she continues to deal with a very very serious  Lymphoma condition.

3)Keith Rothery (a local preacher & good friend of Chadsmoor ) and his wife Norma. Both have various health issues - but Norma is in particular need of prayers at this time.

4) Rev Margaret Eales (Chasewater Section Minister) recovering from two recent tumbles.

5) Sam Woodberry a former regular local preacher at Chadsmoor - now struggling with Parkinson’s disease.

.....and ....now a SPECIAL prayer for all those for whom the newly imposed COVID ‘Lockdown  will bring particular difficulties - those who are especially vulnerable due  to age or health factors...those having to shield ...those feeling particularly isolated... those who feel at the end of their tether...those desperately missing the warm embrace of loved ones...

Finally...and despite all  the sadness & hurt of the past year....alongside our Intercessions we bring our THANKFULNESS  to God for:-

    - those occasions when HEALING followed                illness

    -those  times when we had FEARS.. which                never materialised

    -that COMFORT & STRENGTH which came to          us even in our lowest of moments

    -those random acts of KINDNESS  which kept          bubbling to the surface all around us ...even          in the darkest of times

    -those blessings we GAINED or RETAINED.....        against all that we lost.

What’s the words in that old Charles Wesley New Year hymn...?

“His Providence has brought us through

Another various year;

We all with vows  and anthems new

Before our God appear”
