The washup from lockdown: What can we pray for our churches?

We don’t need to talk to too many church pastors to see that the last two years have been extraordinarily difficult. Of course, there have also been many blessings – and we know that God is always at work for his glory and the good of his people. So as our churches begin their third year under COVID, the ACR thought it would be helpful for us to begin the year by praying for one another.

The Sydney Anglican Diocese is a fellowship of churches partnering together in the gospel for the glory and Kingdom of our great God. There are many ways in which we can and should express this fellowship, and one great way is by praying for one another.

Over the next few weeks, the ACR will be sharing prayer points from various church pastors from within the Sydney Anglican Diocese. Will you join me in praying for these churches? What better way to express our fellowship as churches than by mimicking Paul in his relationship with the Philippian church, always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer (Phil 1:3-5).

In Christ,

Please give thanks for 3 people who committed themselves to Christ in December.

Give thanks also for our new building extension, and the way it enhances our relationships and opportunities to connect with the local community. Pray we will use it well. We have a Hope Explored course taking place in March – please pray that many guests would attend.

Please pray that those who are able to return to our gathering, but haven’t, would return soon. Pray that we would faithfully follow up each one to encourage them to return to church.

Give thanks for 6 new staff starting in 2022. Pray that the staff will bond well as a team and serve Christ effectively.

Thank you,
Neil Fitzpatrick
