2021 Prayer Requests
Administration & Hospitality
Give thanks for time and space to catch up on office administration and procedures.
Pray for God’s leading in their preparation time
- Bible Teaching – Chris Wright
- Evening Celebrations – Amy Summerfield and Malcolm Duncan
- Pray for the New Irish Arts team led by Jonathan Rea as they plan for the sung praise and for the main stage planning team as they decide which mission reports and interviews with individuals to include in the programme.
- Pray for our main stage speakers, that God will bless their preparation time and they will be attentive to what He wants to say through them at New Horizon this year.
Bible Teaching – Chris Wright Evening Celebrations – Amy Summerfield and Malcolm Duncan
- A live online broadcast brings greater complexities in planning and running each celebration – timing needs to be precise, and it is harder to be spontaneous – but also opportunities for this to reach people widely and to engage the audience in new ways. Pray for wisdom as we continue our planning. Pray especially that those leading the events will connect well with the audience so that we are still like a community together and that God will work in lives to bring salvation and transformation for His glory and the strengthening of His Church.
Media & Technical
- Planning and setup of the livestream event
- As we seek to put the technical team together
- For health and safety before, during and after the event
- As we focus on mission, please pray for all the agencies who usually attend New Horizon that they would continue to know God’s guidance and empowerment as they continue to reach out to the last, the least and the lost in these ever-changing times.
- Give thanks that even in the midst of this season God is still clearly at work drawing people to himself at home and across the world.
- Pray for those agencies preparing to share at New Horizon that it would be both encouraging for them and inspiring to each of us as we hear of steps of faith, peace being built, and lives being transformed.
Explore – Seminars
- Pray for the seminar team as they finalise the details of the NH Explore programme and liaise with the speakers – for clarity, wisdom, and guidance. Pray too for NH Explore, that it would serve to bless, challenge, and equip God’s people, and that it would complement and enhance the overall New Horizon programme this year.
- Pray for the seminar speakers who will be sharing with us this summer, as they prayerfully prepare their material. Ask God to bless them and help them as they prepare to share with us via an online broadcast rather than in the New Horizon tented village.
- Pray for all of us who will connect with the NH Explore programme this year – for hearts and minds open to listen and learn what God will teach us through the seminars.
- Pray that people would avail of prayer support from the Prayer Team during the event.
- Pray that the members of the Prayer Team would continue to feel connected to each other despite this being another year of physical separation.
