Prayer Diary

Saturday, 19 September 2020

We invite you to Pray Through the Week with Jesus by sharing our prayer diary with you.

Pray Through The Week


We in the Prayer Group will be providing a Thought for the Week. Hopefully this will provide a topic that we may pray around each day during the week.

'Count your blessing, name them one by one', so the song goes, but it can sometimes be difficult to remember we have many blessings, and that they are not all material things.  However low our pile of blessings seems, we should always give thanks.  Maybe this wee prayer will give us a start.

Ephesians 1:3

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving and Help for Others

Dearest Heavenly Father,

I bless Your Holy Name as I come before You today with a glad and thankful heart.  I give thanks for all the small things in life, the things I take for granted, that so many people don't even have.  Help me, Father to appreciate the blessings You have given.

I pray for those who are lost, those for whom the small things in life, even the necessary things are missing.  Enter their hearts and minds, guide them towards You, Father.  Let them find a way to manage life.

Be near to us all, Father.  Help us to know the way You have planned for us.  Keep us close, guide us in everything we do and give us Your blessing.

 In Jesus’ name, Your Son, My Blessed Saviour


As disciples of the Lord we witness, worship and pray together in the fellowship of the Lord.

In that fellowship we share in the Dreghorn and Springside congregation we find our strength and discover our Christian mission. We know our Father God will always give us the strength to fulfil our mission.  God Bless.
