· Pray for more volunteers from our congregation to come forward to befriend CAP clients and share their faith with them on visits and to welcome them at church on Sundays.

· As Welcome Church starts to offer CAP Services in Woking, pray that the Holy Spirit would bless the work of all the churches in Woking and multiply the impact as we work and pray together.

· Pray for a family in Woking who are going on a CAP Discovery Break in October. Pray that they may encounter the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.

· Pray for the CAP Head-office staff (based in Bradford) to be blessed by the power of the Spirit as they seek to get on top of a huge build-up of very complex cases following the BBC documentary about CAP aired last year which brought in so many new vulnerable clients.
