Prayer request January 2019

Bishop Given asks for our prayers this month:

Please continue to pray:

  • for our farming season, that God will provide us all with good rain and a good harvest in 2019.
  • for the retreat for our pastors and their spouses on 15 and 16 January. May God bless this time together.
  • for the St Peter and St Paul Academy, a Diocesan English Medium School due to open this month..  Please pray for all the practicalties associated with starting a new school and for the students and teachers, as they settle into their new community together.
  • for our Bible College and its need. We hope the Principal will join us in February.
  • for the work that is underway to complete the Mothers' Union hostel, that the construction and other plans will go smoothly, allowing the building works to finish this month and the Hostel to open soon after.  Pleae pray for God to bless this project and the income that it will bring to the Diocese.

Please also pray for:

  • our Area Deans meeting on 14 January, when we will be planning and organising the year's programme for the Diocese and
  • for the Bishop's trip to Nairobi for the Ten Talents meeting. He travels out on Tuesday 8 January and returns on Sunday 13 January 2019. May the Bishop be blessed with travelling mercies and may the meeting and all those present be guided by God's will as they work for his kingdom.

Thank you.
