‘An eleven day ‘Global Wave of Prayer’ from Ascension Day to Pentecost.’
It was really encouraging on the Sunday before Ascension Day to see how many people took one of the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ booklets, as we thought about praying for five friends who need to know more of Jesus. The desire to pray is there, but it is so easy to get distracted. We recognise that the devil will only try to stop us when what we are doing is of eternal significance and so finding the time and inclination to pray can be hard. Coming together to pray can be a real source of encouragement.
‘Praying Together’ on the Tuesday morning and ‘Prayer and Praise’ on the Wednesday evening were wonderful times of encouragement. Spending time together, aligning ourselves to God’s purposes and then lifting the things that he puts on our hearts in prayer is a real privilege and already we have seen some of those prayers answered.
‘Prayer Ministry’ – (a posh name for being ready to listen to someone and then pray with them!) Few of us like to admit that we might need help at times, but we know we do and we would like to see it become quite normal and acceptable for anyone to come for prayer at the end of the 10:30 service. This can be a real blessing and we have a team of very able and willing people who are ready to pray with you. Please don’t forget that we also have ‘Prayer at 10’ on a Sunday in the Lower Lounge so do come and join us there.
‘God does nothing but in answer to prayer’
We may have heard this John Wesley quote a few times recently, as we have been thinking again in the Sunday Services about Prayer but do we really believe it and are we willing to act on it?
