As well as praying for and supporting our own church, we encourage all members of SNAC to be praying for and supporting world mission. In particular, we want to be supporting our link missionaries with the CMS. As the end of financial year approaches, CMS has launched its Lasting Hope appeal. Please use the forms in your Weekly SNAC this week to consider your support of world mission.As well as praying for and supporting our own church, we encourage all members of SNAC to be praying for and supporting world mission.

In addition, here are two prayers you might like to use or adapt for your own prayer for our link missionaries this week.

We praise you, Lord of all, for the gifts of Christ our ascended King:for apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.Hear our prayer for all who do not know your loveand have not heard the gospel of our Saviour Jesus Christ.Send out your light and truth through the messengers of your word (especially … )and bring many to saving trust in Christ.Help us to support them by our prayers and offerings,and to commend the gospel ourselves by what we say and do.Hasten the coming of your kingdom,through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Heavenly Father,the harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few.May you open the doors for the message throughout our worldand raise up labourers to go.May those who go proclaim the mystery of Christ clearly and fearlessly.Give them a genuine love and deep understanding of the peoples they live among.May they speak as one speaking the very words of God,may they serve with the strength you provide,so that in all things you may be praised,through Jesus Christ. Amen
