As with any church project, prayer is the essential element that underpins Next Steps. We value your prayers and this page will give some prayer points for you to use including a downloadable guide.
Let us start by Praising & Giving Thanks to God:
for His daily blessings, both large and small
that the planning paperwork needed to meet the Phase 1 deadline for the improvements to the rear rooms and the rehoming of the organ was completed and submitted on time
for the inspiration given to the architects as they considered the objections given by the BU’s Listed Buildings Advisory Committee and found potential solutions for Phase 2 (front entrance, stairs and porch)
Now, here are some prayers you could use to ask God:
The Team asks for specific prayer support for the planning application process at this time
that God will be glorified in ALL we do as a church.
that all members of the BU's LBAC committee understand and focus on Our Vision for our church building at their meeting on the 2nd of September and that they will be guided by God in all they think, say and do
that they are guided by how the plans for the building, both Phase 1 and Phase 2, will support a vibrant growing Christian witness, here in Bluntisham and the surrounding communities, to help more people come to know the love of God for themselves
- that they will be prepared to put aside personal agendas to find a way forward which satisfies all concerned parties and most importantly brings glory to God
- for continued patience and wisdom for the Next Steps group as they await, and then attend to, the outcomes of the meeting
- that the fundraising event on 6th September is an enjoyable evening and that the practicalities run smoothly
