Thy Kingdom Come -10-20 May

Prayer for Peace - Saturday 4 August
Could we set up several events around the Island for this national Day of Prayer? - On 4th August 1918 King George V called a national day of prayer; 99 days passed and on the 100th day the war ended. In 2018 we will be marking the 99 days before Armistice Day on Sunday 11th November 2018, praying for peace in the world but also peace in the hearts of men and women, that they might be reconciled to God through Jesus.
Pray for Newport
I went to the ‘Shaping Newport’ Business Workshop last week, where there was a lot of common sense and some good discussion. No massive surprises, but as well as the predictable subjects (parking, traffic, general tattiness, lack of things to do, too many empty shops / charity shops / betting shops, etc.), there was a general feeling that Newport has lost its heart / vision / sense of purpose
. Apparently, some holiday coach parties that come over (and still love the Island) now ask to be taken to Bournemouth on day trips in preference to Newport!
It seems to me that this loss of vision and purpose is a valid matter for prayer / thought / engagement in some form or other, particularly for Newport churches.

Please Pray for ‘Community Spirited’
A care agency with a big heart. It was born out of faith and the love of God. We are very family orientated and are having trouble recruiting the right people who want to make a difference. The people who work for me are not all Christians but they have a very caring nature.
Our services are in demand, we would like to recruit carers in the local areas of East Cowes and Wootton to cut the travel time for them and us.
We are also preparing to reach out to people with our community group called ‘Community Spirited Cafe’ - a place where the vulnerable people of our community can feel safe and valued. Where we can work together for a much more positive future. Where we can do God’s work.
