The Faricys' October Prayer Points
  • Give thanks for our August share the gospel month, particularly for the non-Christians that came to church and our evangelistic event. Pray that we’d follow up well and that they’d come to know life to the full in Jesus.
  • Our family is travelling to Perth for the Northwest Diocesan family conference and then Synod. Give thanks we can go. Pray for safe travel, good fellowship and a time of refreshment.
  • Pray for our lay preachers and service leaders who will be preaching while Daniel is away.
  • Give thanks for the new members to our Tuesday night Grow Group, pray that as we meet and study God’s word together that God will grow us to be more like Christ.
