Suggestions for Prayers 

Remember and pray for Christians worldwide who are prepared to suffer for their faith, rather than deny the Lord Jesus. Pray that they will be given the courage to persevere and especially pray for Christians in Iraq and Syria. Pray also for God’s continued blessing on such ministries as Open Doors, Barnabas Fund and Release, as they serve and encourage Christians existing under religious persecution.  

Pray for People in the Deighton Bar area of Wetherby: Orchard View, South View, Dearne Croft, Esk Gardens, Dove Close, Loxley Grove, those attending Kirk Deighton Church and the Baptist Church meeting at Deighton Gates School.    

This week Churches in Wetherby will be praying for: The Baptist Church and ministry through Margins.
