Week of Prayer

'...and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.' Ephesians 6:18

From 15th October, we are dedicating a week to praying more as a church and individually. We want to build the muscle of prayer in our lives, and so we will be praying morning, midday and evening.

Prayer is a great way of engaging with God, allowing Him to shape the way we live, and helping us sense His presence throughout our day. We have created some resources to help you pray throughout your day. They are available at our Sunday services, or you can download them below.

There will also be a selection of prayer events happening across the city; some gathered events, and some in houses. Check out the events below, to find out what will be happening in your service.

 

Daily devotions

Why not set aside a few minutes at key times of your day to pray these prayers. Begin your morning by dedicating the day ahead to God; in the middle of the day, re-centre yourself on Him by praying the Lord’s Prayer; and in the evening, end your day with prayerful reflection.

Our Father

Jo Wells 10th January 2017

What we believe about God affects how we approach Him, and Jesus taught his disciples to begin prayer saying, “Our Father…” (Matthew 6:9). In the first talk of our series, Jo considers how knowing God as Father is the foundation for prayer.
