This is our prayer blog for 2018. Please feel free to add any comments or requests of your own as the prayer requests through the year. If you prefer to send these by email, please contact help@christiansinpharmacy.org

It's encouraging to hear how CiP is growing in membership by word of mouth, and also with the engagement of the leadership team, and how it is encouraging our brothers and sisters in the world of pharmacy.

We are thankful to the Lord for His many blessings and would be grateful if our members could pray for the following:
 

Prayer Points for Q2/3 2018

Dear praying friends. As we near the half way point of the year the CiP leadership team would like to encourage you to join us in prayer as we thank the Lord for his guidance so far this year and seek his aid as we all continue to live for him in the pharmaceutical world
.

If you have any thoughts/suggestions/words of encouragement for the leadership team or anything that you would like us to support you with in prayer please get in touch.

Please give thanks for

  • The great support we get from TWUK
  • The opportunity to meet together in London from time to time
  • The impact that CiP is able to have
  • The wherewithal to keep the organisation funded.  Although at times finances were stretched as was our faith we were never unable to pay our bills.  If you would like to ensure that this remains the case please make a donation via our web site. 
Please pray 
  • for the CiP leadership team that we will know the Lord’s guidance as we seek to grow the organisation both in terms of numbers and in terms of relationships
  • for a good attendance at the London conference and that those who attend will be encouraged and blessed both on the day and as they serve in their own workplaces. The conference that was run in March on the hot topic of ‘Mental Health’ was such a blessing to those who came that we have decided to update it a little and offer a second opportunity for folk to benefit on 20thOctober at the Christian Concern premises 70 Wimpole Street.  Please pray that the right people will attend and that those who do so will benefit.  Why not put the date in your diary now and plan to attend yourself?
  • for members under pressure.  In particular
    1. those who are experiencing staff shortages, difficulty in recruitment and hence increased personal workloads especially in the hospital and mental health sectors
    2. those who are finding it difficult to ‘switch off’ due to a constant high level of demand
    3. those experiencing uncertainty due to the potential effects of Brexit especially
      1. for the MHRA who will lose much of their European work during the transition phase, and probably beyond. Pray for staff, especially those from EU states, who may feel unsettled at this time. Also, please pray for Christians at the MHRA to be a positive witness..
      2. Pharma Industry who need wisdom for where to base research and production post Brexit.
  • for students who will soon be facing the start of a pre-registration placement or the registration exam.  That they will find peace in the midst of stress.
  • for outreach into the student world by CiP leaders, that Christian students studying pharmacy and related subjects will join with the organisation and find support inn their studies and their careers
Finally, in order to enhance the sense of community among our membership members of the leadership team will be reaching out to individuals on our mailing list who live in their approximate geographical area.  Please pray that these contacts will be well received and will help the organisation to grow in community, cohesion, faith for what can do in our sphere of influence, numbers and impact

Prayer Points for Q1 2018

As we begin 2018 it is a great opportunity to give thanks for what the Lord did for the organisation in 2017 and to bring our ‘requests before him with thanksgiving’ [Phil 4 v6] for 2018

Please join us in thanking the Lord for many blessings in 2017 in particular for

  • Two very interesting, informative and helpful London meetings on the subjects of ‘Conscience’ and ‘Servant hearted leadership’.  The talks were good, case studies thought provoking and fellowship encouraging.  The LT was heartened by the number of CiP members who attended across the two days
  • The positive impact that our prayers, submissions to the GPhC and engagement with supportive Christian bodies had in shaping the guidance around the professional standard on Religion, Values and Personal Beliefs.  Thank God that freedom of conscience has been preserved.
  • The wherewithal to keep the organisation funded.  Although at times finances were stretched as was our faith we were never unable to pay our bills.  If you would like to ensure that this remains the case please make a donation via our web site.
Please pray
  1. for the CiP leadership team that we will know the Lord’s guidance as we seek to grow the organisation both in terms of numbers and in terms of relationships
  2. for a good attendance at the London conference and that those who attend will be encouraged and blessed both on the day and as they serve in their own workplaces. Specifically please pray for our next conference which will be on the hot topic of ‘Mental Health’ at the Christian Concern premises in Wimpole Street on the 10th March.
  3. for members under pressure.  In particular
    1. those who are experiencing staff shortages, difficulty in recruitment and hence increased personal workloads especially in the hospital and mental health sectors
    2. those who are finding it difficult to ‘switch off’ due to a constant high level of demand
    3. those experiencing uncertainty due to the potential effects of Brexit  especially
      1. the MHRA (30% of their work is currently directly undertaken for Europe)/EMA in the light of the announcement of the move of the EMA to Amsterdam.
      2. Pharma Industry who need wisdom for where to base research and production post Brexit.
  4. for students who study pharmacy or related courses.  The work load is high on such courses and study pressures can be demanding. That they will meet with Christians in their universities and grow in their faith and their chosen profession
