The Bible Reading Fellowship Enabling all ages to grow in faith

Pray

We invite you to pray with us for God’s work through BRF

Prayer is at the heart of BRF’s work

From The Bible Reading Fellowship’s earliest days, prayer has been of central importance. Prayer is not a separate programme or initiative but is the very foundation of all we do; it is the soil and the sunshine by which our BRF ‘tree of ministries’ has grown and will continue to grow.

No wonder 1 Thessalonians 5:17 advises us to ‘never stop praying’ (NIRV)!

We are so grateful to those who have prayed with us over the years. BRF’s vision is to enable all ages to grow in faith, and we are very aware that this is God’s work in which we are called to share. If we do not remain joined to Christ through faithful prayer, we can do nothing that will bear lasting fruit.

Weekly prayer

Our weekly e-prayer bulletin, written by our Chief Executive Richard Fisher, shares current and up-to-date information about the charity’s activities. In addition to asking you to pray for BRF’s work, it includes prayer suggestions for the wider world. Following a short introduction there are seven prayer suggestions.

The BRF Prayer

Almighty God

You have taught us that your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.

Help us, and all who prayerfully read your word to deepen our fellowship with you and with each other through your love. And in so doing, may we come to know you more fully, love you more truly and follow more faithfully in the steps of your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forevermore,

Amen

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
