Prayer for our city

Heavenly Father,

We pray that you would protect our city from further acts of violence, and fill our streets with peace.

For those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, would you draw close to them and bring them comfort. Would those who feel fearful or vulnerable instead be filled with hope.

We pray that these recent attacks would not lead to fear, uncertainty, or division. And may they not become a catalyst for further acts of hate.

Thank you for the men and women who risk their lives on behalf of others. Would you empower the police and emergency services to protect our city from further acts of violence. And would you empower us, your church, to be peacemakers in our communities.

We look forward to the day when weapons will be beaten into ploughshares, every tear will be wiped away, and death will be swallowed up forever. We pray for a foretaste of that day right now.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

In this talk, we look at how the mindset of cynicism can prevent us from seeing through the eyes of faith, and make us blind to what God is doing. Andy shares ways that we can move towards faith that opens our eyes to see God’s kingdom and power all around us, and not return to our old ways of thinking.

The Price for our Attention

Jo Wells 21st June 2022

In the first talk of our series, Jo looks at the power of distraction in our lives, and how it can lead to worry, inertia, or things that aren’t meant for us. We look at the encounter between Jesus and Martha in Luke chapter 10, and how He reminds her of what is important, and realigns her heart with His. We also look at practical habits we can implement that will help us move away from distraction and towards devotion to Jesus.
