Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
My heart is being stirred by a book I am currently reading by Jim Cymbala called “Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire”. If I could summarise what I have read so far it would be two words – “fervent prayer”.
Let me quote from the book. “The sad truth is, in the city where I live (Chicago), and all across the country, more people are turning to crack than to Christ. More people are dipping into drugs than are getting baptised in water. What is going to reverse this tide? Preaching alone will not do it; classes aren’t going to do it; more money isn’t going to do it. Only turning God’s house into a house of fervent prayer will reverse the power of evil so evident in the world today.”
We know that prayer is the foundation of everything. I believe we are starting to see a ‘fervency’ in our prayer meetings that we haven’t seen before. So let me encourage us all again – if we prioritise anything in our week let it be prayer. We gather corporately weekly on Thursdays at 12 noon, before the Sunday service from 8:45am and on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm in the lounge. Let us carry everything to God in prayer.
With love & blessings,
