St Christopher’s, Boring Wells – 5 March

Rector: Adrian McCartney

Please join with Adrian McCartney as he prays his regular prayer for the growing faith community of St Christopher’s, Mersey Street.

  • Father in Heaven, thank you for your goodness towards us in growing the family of St Christopher’s. Please provide the stability, the relationships, the resources and the finance to enable us to be your family in the most effective and loving ways in this community.
  • Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for your salvation poured over us, your forgiveness, your grace, and your healing.  May we all be envisioned to extend your kingdom into lives and into the very structures of this community so that light will shine ever brighter in dark places and into broken lives.
  • Holy Spirit, empowerer of the weak, please pour out your power on all who need transformation and healing to become more and more like Christ.  Please pour out your power on all who make any attempt to minister in His name and may our lives be constantly awakened and enriched and used for the glory of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
