June Prayer Bulletin
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
I can't believe how quickly this year is going, and that it's nearly the summer. As a charity we have seen a continuation in the high volume of requests being posted to our website, but we are thankful for our regular and generous donors who go on to our website to meet the need for those in poverty or facing hardship.
We're also very thankful for new donors who are finding out about our work through our partner churches/charities and through social media. Please pray that more new donors find out about our work, and enable us to meet the requests for help more quickly.
Please do join us in praying for all our events this month, and for those individuals that we are seeking to help through our work. There are many, such as the individuals below, who are facing difficult and tragic situations. Their circumstances are made easier through the practical help from our partner churches and charities, and please do join us in praying that we can play a vital part of this work.
Firstly this month we are very thankful to God for:
A mention in a BBC news article recently, which you can view here. The article focused on an Acts 435 recipient who was lacking carpets in her social housing property. It caught the attention of some new donors, as well as carpet companies offering help.
Conversations with a new external partner; Kids Matter. They work with churches to provide support groups for parents in poverty. Please pray that many of their churches will partner with us, and that we will be a helpful resource to them.
An opportunity to share with Christ Central (New Frontiers) church leaders at the end of June. Please pray for good conversations and lots of fruit to come from this.
The 583 individuals and families who have been helped in May by Acts 435 Advocates and donors with £85,560 distributed to those who need it most.
Please join us in praying for:
Our staff team as we gather with some of our local Advocates, either in person or online, over the next two weeks. Please pray for good conversations, and that it is a great time for connecting together.
An opportunity with Compassionate Communities in London to share with their churches online at their Lunch and Learn webinar on 20th June. Please pray for lots of churches to attend, and for them to be inspired and equipped about Acts 435.
Our local partners to continue to spread the word about our work, and that many new donors will hear about us and be attracted by our unique way of giving to support individuals.
As always, thank you for your prayers for these individuals, our Advocates and for Acts 435 as we seek to do more for those in need in the UK.
