Under normal circumstances, we regularly pray for people at our services, and St Stephen’s is often open during the week for anyone to drop in to pray, or to be prayed for. However, as all our buildings are currently closed, and our services have moved online, we have instead set up this virtual prayer wall.
If you would like to pray, or like us to pray for you or someone you know, please submit your prayer request below.
(please note, when you press submit they won’t appear on the wall immediately, as they will first go to one of our prayer team).
Please pray for Lesley, Tamzin and Andrew following the death of Doris, long time the verger at St. Stephen's

A father battling with addiction
Please join me in praying for P who has suffered with addiction for years - costing his home and relationships. He is now doing the recovery course - remotely - and feeling God's power of healing. Pray he will continue to come closer to God and distance himself from the drink and its evil impact on his life and those around him.

First praise God, and a big thank to all who have been praying for me. bing stuck indoors since Friday, not being able to walk was a problem, because I have Osteoporosis it is important that I walk. The reason for praise is that my doctor has said, although I can't go to shops etc, I can go for a walk as long as I have distance between me and others. I live near the castle and the sportsground so this is an added blessing. Thank you God

Prayer for Barnes Lodge
Mum is a resident in Barnes Lodge. I had a 'phone call today to say they have their first confirmed case of C19. Currently on a 12 week lockdown residents are now isolated to their
rooms. Staff are working under such unprecedented pressures - would value prayer for residents and staff. I have emailed our MP to liaise with the home and ensure protective equipment arrives in a timely manner, especially with this new update. Thank you. Best Wishes and stay safe.
