NEW! NEW! NEW!
Mission Partner Prayer Spot:
Grace McSharry working with Fusion – Please pray for Grace, may God strengthen her during times of anxiety and stress. May she return to work at Fusion with renewed strength and focus. Fusion are trying to draw in local churches to the university Fresher fair events. Please pray that the churches are there and that during their time at university they help develop the students faith. We pray for all the university students, including those within our own church as they go away to study. We pray for the interns working with Fusion and that they have a positive experience. May you draw near to Grace and enable her to fulfil her vision. Amen.
Grace’s vision statement: “My vision is to love life, people, and work through the eyes of Jesus, listen to the voice of Jesus, and pursue the heart of Jesus. I carry a prophetic gifting, and practically know how to articulate the vision of Fusion well. I commit to making sure the “voice of Fusion” is not only shaped well, but heard loud and clear for students, student workers, and churches to engage in- whether that’s me on social media, empowering other Fusion team members to share blog posts, or gathering content from across all the different aspects of work that we do.”
The Rocks Family in Brazil: We pray for the Rocks family as they prepare to return to UK and visit various churches and areas. They are in UK from December to February. Amen
