St Osyth Deanery Prayer Diary

May – June 2020





St Paul’s, Clacton

·         Pray for church regulars to benefit from the weekly online audio services, for our new Zoom weekly Bible Study group, for us to somehow maintain contact with our large fringe of young people and families.


Tenpenny Parishes

·         Those impacted by Corona Virus and especially those who are bereaved within close or extended family. 

·         For the ministry of funerals at this challenging time, we remember the work of Crem staff and funeral directors. 

·         For the McCann family back on furlough from working with OMF in Cambodia and automatically involved in Lockdown - for adjustment and chance to recharge and see family as travel limitations lift. 

·         For Roni as she supports CAP clients at this challenging time. 

·         For the great work of out Foodbank's and their brilliant workers and volunteer network. 


St. John’s and St. Mark’s, Great Clacton

  • We are putting our services on YouTube at the moment - please pray that some people we haven't seen for a while would be watching - and some who we have never seen before - and pray that they would hear the good news.
  • Please pray that, as a church family, we would all keep in touch with each other, and maybe even get to know each other better, at this time.   
  • Please pray for several recently bereaved people in the church family - especially as the present circumstances are making things more difficult for them.


All Saints’ Walton

·         That our weekly podcasts are helping to keep our congregation in touch and that they provide some continuity.

·         However, we are praying especially for our local economy. At this time of year a seaside resort would usually be in full swing and it must be terribly hard for so many businesses, especially in the hospitality sector.


St. Mary’s, Frinton

·         'Please pray for several elderly members of our congregation who are nearing the end of their lives on earth.  And pray for their families also.'

·         'Pray for the staff in our Care Homes where there is increased danger due to Covid-19' 


St. Michael’s, Kirby, All Saints’, Great Holland and Crossways Church, Kirby Cross

·         That this strange time would somehow, in God’s sovereignty, be good for us as churches.

·         For those on their own particularly the longer this goes on.

·         For financial provision and wisdom of the next months and years.


St. Osyth and Great Bentley

·         Help us to maintain our physical and mental health during lockdown and to recognise God’s presence wherever we are.

·         Give thanks for our communities and all that they do to support each other in these difficult times.
