Dear Hope family,

Thought for the Week

How to pray #3.

Acts 4v24 “When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God.”  (NIV)

In the early church there were daily gatherings for prayer together. Jesus stated, “I tell you that if two or three of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them,” Matthew 18v19-20. In short there is something spiritually powerful as we pray together. Why? Because Jesus is with us as we gather, and because he has promised to answer as we agree together in our petitions and intercessions! There is something powerful about a genuine “Amen” from others as we pray.

These days we can gather on-line or in person and there are various ones of us meeting in small groups and 2s and 3s to pray together. Would you like to join such a group?

Next Wednesday August 31st, we are gathering for a day of prayer. You are welcome. I know some are away or working, but for those that can, I can encourage you to participate as you are able. The timetable for the day is below and you can join at any point. We will meet in the Prayer Room during the day and then in St Christopher’s Room from 7pm.

If you are not able to be present, you could use the timetable below as a guide so that we may pray in Spirit together.

With love and blessing,
