ACF and the corona virus
In keeping with government advice, the Elders at Aberdeen Christian Fellowship have made the decision to close the church building with immediate effect, and until the governments declare it safe to reopen.
We are currently exploring ways to hold ‘virtual services’, but until that time can we encourage you to pray every evening from 7pm to 7.30pm in your own homes, including prayer for the Governments of the UK, the NHS, and along the following lines:
Lord, Jesus Christ, we come to you carrying the fears and uncertainties of this current crisis,
hearing your invitation to cast all our cares on you.
Jesus, the Great Healer,
for those suffering the symptoms of corona virus, bring recovery, immunity and new strength.
Jesus, the Prince of Peace
for those full of fear at what might come to pass, let the knowledge of your presence calm their
Jesus, the Servant of All,
for those providing health care in these demanding times, give strength, skill and support.
Jesus, Lord of the Church,
For the sake of your world and the glory of your name, raise us up for deeds of compassion and
mercy in these days.
Jesus, Crucified and Risen Saviour,
may your power be made known, for the blessing of your world and the glory of your name
In addition, if you have any prayer requests, or are in need of assistance during this emergency, can we encourage you to let us know by e-mailing email@example.com
or firstname.lastname@example.org Please let us know if you are happy for any such requests to be shared, as we seek to publish daily prayer points to our church family, that together we may approach the Throne of Grace with confidence in the goodness and grace of our loving Father
Brian, on behalf of the ACF Elders.
