You will have heard that we are setting aside a week (10th - 17th November from 7am till 10pm) for continuing prayer in the church building and we would want to encourage who attend or who are connected to our church to participate in this. Please sign-up using the page at www.24-7prayer.com/signup/5d3a0d where you can select the hour(s) you wish to use the room. There will also be a paper copy of the sign-up sheet in the foyer of the church for you to use and this will be kept in sync with the on-line sheet.
The theme for our time of prayer is "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). Although we are all free to pray in whatever way we wish the aim is for us to spend time with God and to have our spiritual lives refreshed by Him. "I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me" (Proverbs 8:17). What an incredible promise!
The main prayer room will be the "Florence" room upstairs and for those who can't cope with the stairs the Hinton room will also be available downstairs. There will be materials for all ages will be available to inspire your prayers and to allow you to express yourself in different ways during the time you spend there. Most people find that an hour is not enough so please do feel free to sign up for more than one hour. This can be consecutive hours or you may wish to come to the prayer room on more than one occasion. Refreshments will be available for longer stays and children under the age of 12 must be supervised.
There will be paper covering part of the walls in the rooms on which you may write, or draw, anything that you believe God is saying to you or has touched your heart during your time of prayer so that this will be an encouragement to all of us. You may also use this space for a prayer request.
Our prayer is that God will bless/challenge/restore or refresh you as you set aside this time to spend with Him.
