Pray without ceasing.
Prayer is an important part of who we are as Christians as we seek to spend time in God’s presence and allow him to shape us, as well
as bringing before him the needs of our world, community, and church.
There are many opportunities to pray – here are a few.
Daily Prayer 10:00am Online and in person
Daily prayer at 10:00am is on Facebook
Monday – Saturday. On Saturdays you can join in-person at St Barnabas.
The services use the Ffald-y-Brenin form of Morning Prayer.
These prayer videos remain available for you to access later via on our
Prayer Chains – Prayer Requests
If you need prayer or wish to support others in prayer, we have an email prayer chain where many people from the church
agree to pray for people's ongoing needs.
If you have any prayer requests for them please contact the clergy.
If you are happy for these to be mentioned in our daily online prayers as well, they can be.
Seeking the Spirit
Weekly at 4:00pm on a Thursday at St Barnabas we are starting a new time of quiet and space where we seek to
allow the Holy Spirit to meet with us and ask him to guide and shape our community. All are welcome to join us.
Prayer down my Street
We have created a giant map of the parish of St Barnabas. We ask everyone to commit to praying every week for two streets.
If you live in the parish, one of these is your own. The other is another which no one else has yet committed to praying for. If
you don't live in the parish, then we'd ask you to commit to 2 streets which no one else is praying for. If you are fit enough,
perhaps you could go and visit the street you are committing to pray for, and prayer walk it. But if not then the act of praying
from home for the people, buildings and communities represented by that street is a key indicator to God that we are serious about
asking him to bless every person in our area with his love.
Praying for each street once a week or more frequently will also, we pray, open up opportunities in these areas for God to act.
Everyone can do this, so please do sign up and we will give you something to help remind you of your commitment to pray.
10 in 10,000
Alongside praying for our community, we also want to ask you to commit to praying for our Churches.
Did you know that there are 10,080 minutes in a week? I'm asking you to commit 10 of them (or 0.1%!) to pray
specifically for your church.
Our churches face huge pressures at the moment. In human terms we have neither the volunteers, the resources, nor the financial
capacity to carry on functioning in the short to medium term. To be able to carry out our core mission of sharing the Good News
of Jesus through word and action to those in our parishes, we need God to guide us and to step in with his resources to help
us. Regular committed prayer for our churches for 10 minutes each week is a way that every single person, regardless of physical
ability, can help.
We will commit as a benefice leadership team to send out a list each month of the particular things or areas that we want prayer
for, and wherever possible let you know how and when God answers our prayers and the signs of hope we see. Everyone can do this,
so please do sign up and we will give you something to help remind you of your commitment to pray.
