    1. That NMB will uphold our reputation of being the "Friendly City" as we welcome our holiday guests.
    2. Many holiday makers and tourists to visit NMB.

    4. Safety on our roads and beaches.

    3. Christian families to be good examples of family life.
    4. Family members to walk in love and forgiveness.
    5. Single parents as they struggle to cope with financial, work, time pressures and

  3. The Church[Ephesians 4: 3, 13, John 13: 34-35, 17:21, Ephesians 6:18, Psalm 133]
    1. For the whole Church to really celebrate over this Christmas Season - that God Himself visited the earth that He had created, on a Mission to seek and save those that were lost!  [Luke 19: 10, John 1: 1 - 4, 11-12, 14]
    2. The NMB Church to receive the vision of a united Body of Christ.  [John 17: 21]

    5. That in 2024 we will see a more and more of the Church realizing the power of God working through us humbly depending on Him through prayer.  [1Thess. 5: 17]
    6. That the Church's influence will be felt throughout our communities in this holiday period and throughout 2024!  [Matthew 5: 13 - 16]
    7. The visit of the Logos Hope in 2024 to really impact this City positively and for many to come to salvation through the visit of this ship - early 2024!
  4. The crime situation in NMB:
    1. A remarkable decrease in crime during the Christmas/New Year period particularly in the Northern Areas - but also in other parts of the Bay.
    2. Criminals to be caught, arrested and correctly sentenced.
    3. The genuine salvation of many criminals during the Christmas Holidays.
