                                                 Call to prayer for more volunteers…

We have been successfully running Street Pastors for nearly 7 years and God has been so faithful to us. We would love to be able to put out a patrol every Saturday night and on Fridays too but we do not have enough volunteers for this to be possible.

At our AGM in July we felt God was saying to us that during this year we should pray earnestly for new volunteers to come forward.

Please join us in this prayer. We have a number of people who have expressed an early interest in joining us. Please pray that they will move forward with this interest into an application.

We do appreciate your faithfulness in praying for us. Thank you!

Pray for our city

  • Pray for the city of Peterborough and those who live here,
    that God 
    may truly rule in this place.
  • Please remember those who we meet on the streets, many of whom will be facing additional stress due to the changes to welfare benefits. Please pray for the opportunity to bring God’s peace and love to them.
  • Pray for the homeless that their true needs will be met.
  • Pray for those who ask searching spiritual questions of the Street Pastors, that they may find God.

Pray for the Street Pastor Scheme

  • Give thanks for an excellent year of service on the streets of Peterborough.
  • Pray for good communication between Management Committee members  and a shared vision for the way forward of the scheme.                          
  • Give thanks for donations of supplies from Safer Peterborough Partnership and a local business.  Pray for continuing and new sources of funding for the scheme.
  • Pray that God would call people to this work in the coming year so that we are able to run another training course.  Pray for wisdom as we seek new ways to recruit more, much needed, volunteers.
  • Thank God for his faithfulness in providing everything we have needed since the scheme began.  
  • Thank God that our team of prayer supporters is growing all the time.
  • Pray for Ascension Trust as they oversee and develop this work nationally.

Pray for those we work with

  • Pray for wisdom and safety for the police as they are called to volatile and uncertain situations.
  • Please pray for good relationships between the police, licensed premises and taxi firms, so that all can work well together. 
  • Ask for wisdom for Councillors as they make decisions about licensing
    applications, that they would be well briefed in making these decisions.  
  • Pray for Children’s and Young People’s Services as they seek to engage with young people, especially those who, for a variety of reasons, may be reluctant to engage.
