Prayer Points – 09 July 2020
- Pray for all those that are ill and lonely either at home or in hospital. Pray for those who are fighting their own personal battles with darkness, and remember their families too!
- Pray that as the church building is now open for private prayer visitors will come into our building and find a place of peace.
- Pray that we are soon able to open the building on Sundays for public worship once given the go ahead by the Scottish Government and the Church of Scotland.
- Pray for all the families at SSCB. A couple of families are expecting new babies very shortly and there are also families facing distress at this time.
- Thy Kingdom Come – pray that in Home Groups and at Kirk Session we might work out not only what God is saying to us as a church but how we can put that into practice. Pray that all of us are ready to tune into God and be prompted by the Holy Spirit.
- Wisdom as lockdown restrictions are lifted and we start to face the New Normal, and continue to be safe and that SSCB be a beacon for hope in the community.
- Pray for the persecuted Christians and the suffering church in Sudan. Sudan is currently a place of great civil conflict and protests. Historically, Islam is deeply embedded in Sudan’s society and the ruling elite aims to enforce an Islamic regime in the country, strictly implementing the policy of one religion, one culture and one language. Many churches have been demolished, and church leaders have been arrested for speaking out against persecution. Blasphemy laws are being used to persecute Christians. Leaving Islam to follow Jesus is illegal and can be punished with the death sentence.

- Pray for all the families at SSCB. A number are expecting new babies very shortly and there are also families facing distress at this time.
- Thy Kingdom Come – pray that in Home Groups and at Kirk Session that we might work out not only what God is saying to us as a church but how we can put into practice what He is asking us to do, and that all of us are ready to tune into God and be prompted by the Holy Spirit.
- Wisdom as lockdown restrictions are lifted and we start to face the New Normal, and continue to be safe and that SSCB be a beacon for Hope in the community.
- Pray for the persecuted and suffering Christians and church in Iraq. Islamic extremism is still a problem in Iraq. Although the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) have lost territory in Iraq, their ideology remains, and the Shia militias who helped drive out IS also persecute Christian believers.
Prayer Points – 26 June 2020
- Pray for our sisters and brothers who are unwell, had or are having a spell in hospital, or are in a constant battle with illness. Some of them are home. Some are recovering. Give thanks for the recoveries, and ask the Lord our Healer (Jehovah Rapha) for their swift return to full health.
- Pray that we can open the church and the church garden on 1st July for Private Prayer, that all Covid-19 related guidelines can be followed, and visitors will find a place of peace.

- Pray for the SSCB Youth Ministry as schools prepare restarting in August.
- Pray for the persecuted and suffering church in Turkmenistan. The strongly Islamic culture makes life difficult for converts to Christianity – conversion is regarded as an affront to the honour of the family. Persecution also comes from the state, as Protestant churches are seen as an alien sect aiming to depose the government.
