Dear Prayer Partners,
Here are this week’s prayer requests…
' For J and M whom all three Street Angels teams met, and talked to, and who were eventually taken to GAD for warmth and safety. For J who was trying to look after M, that he find accommodation after his release from prison and that he curtails his drink habit. For M that the conversations he had with the Street Angels and GAD team will bear fruit and give thanks for the Street Angels intervention and help in getting him a cab home. Please pray that he also is sensible in his drinking and that he doesn’t place himself in danger.
' For M and L a man and women well known to the Street Angels over the past few years. Thank God for their friendliness and support for the Street Angels. We pray that they found accommodation and that they will be able to find a permanent place to stay. We also pray that the interventions and conversations with the Street Angels will bring them both to the Lord.
' For S, and for the two brothers M and J, that they also finds permanent accommodation.
' For J, a homeless man who has been in Watford for a couple of months but is in very bad shape, both physically and mentally, due to addictions. We pray that God holds this man in His hand and that the Watford New Hope Trust and other Christians he comes into contact with may work to improve his wellbeing.
' For all those in our homeless community at this time of increasingly cold weather, that they are protected when on the streets, that they resist alcohol and drugs and that they find a loving relationship with our Lord.
' For R, the driver of a Stretch limo, that he is protected from any harm on his travels with young people on Friday and Saturday evenings and for sharing time with the Street Angels.
' For N, a Christian security guard. We give thanks for his interest in the work of the Street Angels and Chaplaincy and pray that he is protected in his work and on his lengthy travels to maintain employment.
' For Y, a musician from Europe who is touring England. We pray protection for his travels and for his fellow musicians and we ask that he shows restraint in his drinking and wisdom when in towns and cities he is not familiar with.
' For S, a policeman who stopped to talk with one of the Street Angels teams about our work and the role of the police. We pray for continued good relations with the men and women who police the Town.
' For the Street Angels as they go out on Friday. Pray for wisdom for them and that God will keep them from harm from physical and spiritual attack. Pray for a peaceful night and opportunities to speak of the love of God.
' For Christmas Wrap next week, for more volunteers to fill the gaps and give thanks for this opportunity to show the love of God by this simple ministry.
' For M that she sorts out her housing issues.
' For healing for Richard and for there to be a quick date for his operation.
' We give thanks for the students of LST who regularly come out with the Street Angels and who, in mid-December, will be returning home for the Christmas break. We thank God for their contribution in words and actions on the streets and pray that they have a peaceful and stress free Christmas.
Thank you for your faithful prayer support,
