PRAYERS FOR BEIRUT. This week has seen the terrible impact of the explosion at a warehouse in the port of Beirut, killing hundreds and injuring thousands of people, as well as impacting the lives of countless people across Beirut and the surrounding country. Lebanon was already in a fragile state. BMS World Mission through its partners have produced a prayer sheet which you can download here, and are coordinating the Baptist relief appeal working with a Baptist NGO in Lebanon.

Our two thousand and twenty hours of prayer adventure, from 1st July to 23rd September, is going from strength to strength. Lots of people are clicking on the website, and a good number logging on to pray at 7pm each evening. For 2020 hours over 85 days we have committed ourselves to pray for Ryde and its surrounding area, over what will be a very difficult summer season this year. It is really encouraging how what started as an idea at one of our Monday prayer meetings in May, has grown to gather support from church leaders of the mainstream Christian denominations in the Ryde area. You can join in at any time and pray each day for some aspect or area of our community life. All the information is on the Pray for Ryde website; visit the website each day to discover the day’s theme and watch a short video introduction and prayer for the day:
