Please pray with us
Prayer is at the heart of our community life at Oak Hill: in the daily chapel services, in fellowship groups, and in lectures. And knowing that our friends and former students are praying for us is a huge encouragement. Thatís why we are regularly posting our prayer and praise requests here, and also via the PrayerMate app. Thank you for praying for us.
April 2017 prayer requests
Please give thanks with us for the 800 people who attended the recent thanksgiving service for the life and ministry of Mike Ovey.
Please pray for the college community as we look forward. We especially value your prayers for Dan Strange in his role as Acting Principal.
Mel Lacy is leading a workshop at the Gospel Coalition Conference in Indianapolis at the start of April, on Engaging Children’s Hearts So They Live for the Glory of God. She is also leading a youth stream at Word Alive. Please pray for Mel at these conferences and in her work at Oak Hill.
Tim Ward is contributing to the student track, and also giving talks to church leaders, at Word Alive on 8-13 April. Please pray, asks Tim, 'that what I've prepared will turn out to be just what the two different groups of people need to hear.'
Our students would really appreciate your prayers as they write assignments and revise for their exams in this summer term. Thanks!
Matthew Barrett is speaking on justification at Bible by the Beach at the end of April. Says Matthew: 'Pray that those listening would leave knowing what it means to be right with a holy God and be equipped to share the gospel in churches throughout the UK.'
Please remember in prayer the Oak Hill Council Nominations Working Group as they work to shape the new leadership structure, following the death of Mike Ovey.
Please pray for students who are preparing to leave college this summer and enter ministry roles in the UK and across the world. And please give thanks that many of them have been able to secure jobs.
