Prayer points for Christmas and New Year

Christmas Week
This is a lovely time of the year when we celebrate the birth of Christ with those we love, however there are many who do not have family or who lost loved ones which can make this a rather lonely time. Pray for those who will be away from home and loved ones. Pray too for those you know in this situation and let us do our best to include those who are lonely in our celebrations. Give thanks for the work of ABBA Trust and Storehouse as they seek to show the love of Christ to those who struggle financially and pray that many who receive will be encouraged to seek the God who inspires this giving.

New Year
At the beginning of a new year let us pray for those in power throughout our world that they would be honest and caring and would seek to follow God’s way in all they do. The task seems enormous but each of us will have a country or countries that we are particularly drawn too so let us pray for the leader and government of that country as we go into this new year. And let us all remember our own province here that our politicians will take this as a new beginning and learn to work together.
