Pray for Shine
Week of mission at Holy Trinity Church, Huddersfield to celebrate 200 years as a church
The mission week at Holy Trinity Church, Huddersfield is almost upon us.
Before the week of mission we are having a week of prayer for the week of mission. We are already halfway through the week of mission. I am asking those who read this blog to join us praying for this event.
These are some of the things to pray for:
Pray for all Shine events. Pray that as people come they will sense God’s presence.
Pray for all our Shine team and our guest hosts.
Pray for energy, joy and success in their preparations.
Pray that Shine may be a step for many to come to know Jesus and follow him.
Pray for people that have been invited. Pray that God will draw them to himself.
To help you pray, and to invite you along if you are in the Huddersfield area, here is what we are doing.
All events are free entry.
