Please pray for our work to bear fruit for God's Kingdom

Thank you for your prayers

It is so important to us that everything we do is supported in prayer. Thank you for partnering with us in seeking God's will and provision for our work.

As we begin 2019, please join us by in prayer for the areas below.

Real people, real communities

1. Real people, real communities

Please pray for the individuals and communities changed through BRF’s programmes and resources in the last year. We thank God for those helped in their spiritual journey, as well as those who have come to know Jesus for the first time. Please pray for their ongoing walk with God in 2019.

Messy Church International Conference

2. The Messy Church International Conference

The second Messy Church International Conference takes place in May. With a focus on discipleship, it will bring Messy Church leaders together from across the UK and around the world. Please pray for the Messy Church team as they make preparations. Pray that the conference will be a valuable opportunity to learn, to be inspired and to meet other Messy Church leaders and friends. 

Discovering God in family life

3. Discovering God in family life

The Parenting for Faith vision is to change a nation by helping Christian parents nurture their children’s faith. With its easy-to-use techniques and practical resources, please pray that more families and churches will discover this opportunity to encourage children to develop their own relationship with God.

Please pray for all our programmes that help schools and churches in their local communities – Barnabas in Schools, Messy Church and The Gift of Years – particularly for the opportunities they may have to share the Easter story.

Provision for our needs

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19

The BRF Prayer

Almighty God,
You have taught us that your word is a lamp for our feet 
and a light for 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 for evermore.
Amen.
