Updated 26 April 2013.....
Pray about the proposals to change the definition of marriage as outline on our main page. Especially pray that the motion tabled by Sinn Fein (and amended by Alliance) would be defeated in the NI Assembly on Monday 29 April.
Pray about the whole abortion issue in NI which has been thrown into sharp focus again by the new Marie Stopes centre opening in Belfast. Pray for young women who find themselves in unwanted pregnancies for whatever reason. Pray too for the young and precious life in the womb - a life which cannot speak for itself. Pray that this new clinic would not be a sustainable presence in our capital city.
Give thanks that the National Trust review of the exhibit at the new Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre which addresses althernative views on the origins of the stones has not been removed as demanded by some. The new wording is less than we would have liked, but, despite the changes, there is, for the first time anywhere in the UK as far as we are aware, is a respectful recognition of other views of the origins if life and of the earth.
Pray for Christian politicians at Stormont, Westminster, Europe and the Local Councils - that they might be prepared to take a strong stand in the face of growing opposition, and raise Biblical standards in our Province and nation.
Pray that our financial base would grow so that we might be able to be more effective in a range of areas.
We intend to develop our lobbying at the NI Assembly. We will write to all MLAs and seek meetings with all the parties. Please pray for a positive repsonse from our politicians.
Pray for all MPs, MEPS, MLAs and Councillors, especially for those Christians who occupy posts as Ministers in the Executive and in other areas of authority. Pray that evangelical politicians would promote and defend Biblical standards in society and that they would resist any pressure to compromise on fundamental issues.
Pray for the Royal Family. We especially remember HM The Queen in this Her Diamond Jubilee. Pray that the Royal Family would turn to the Lord and seek to set a godly example to the nation. May we all pray, "God save the Queen".
Pray for the Caleb officers - Wallace Thompson (chairman); Rev Billy Park (vice-chairman); Rev Robert McEvoy (secretary).
Pray for the Caleb Council of Reference - pray for unity, wisdom and grace as it meets to direct the work of the Foundation.
Pray for our continued liaison with the BBC, that we might be able to build on the progress made so far in relation to a better and fairer representation for evangelicals on local radio and TV.
Give thanks for all that has been achieved by the Caleb Foundation so far.
