Special Points for Prayer this week
Pray earnestly for God's Church. That is all Churches and denominations that faithfully preach the full Gospel of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of all who believe in Him.
Pray for our Nation (the UK and Scotland) that our leaders will act resposibly, not simply for their own self interest, nor the party they represent, but the interest of all the people and that they will look to almighty God for guidance rather than simply depending on their own merits

Calvin on Prayer
None can really pray to God but those who with a pure heart fear and rightly
The discipline of the cross is necessary, so that earnest prayer may become vigorous in us.
Our own scanty desires hinder God from pouring out His gifts upon us in greater abundance.
Lloyd-Jones on Prayer
Believers used to use this great term - "Pleading the promises."
You never hear it now. Why? Because people do not really pray any longer, they send
little telegrams to God. They think that is the height of spirituality. They know
nothing about "wrestling" with God and "pleading the promises".
Our first prayer is not prayer for statesmen, nor for friends or relatives, nor for other
nations, that is not the first prayer. The first prayer is to plead with God to come into
His Church, to manifest His glory to show us something of the might of His power and to fill
us with that power.
