Happy New Year to you all. As we look to the New Year it's terribly important to commend all things to God's hand in prayer. Prayer is a great privilege; to have fellowship with the Lord is an honour, yet it's also crucial for the soul. Corrie Ten Boom said, "What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so to is prayer to the soul."
Our annual Week of Prayer begins on the 29th January until 4th February. I would ask that you set aside this week and join us as this is a great blessing and encouragement. We start at 10am on the 29th before our Morning service. On each weekday I am asking you to pause at 8am and 8pm wherever you happen to be and spend time in prayer, in the knowledge that others are doing so at the same time. On Tuesday 31st January and Thursday 2nd February at 7.30PM and on Saturday Morning, the Church building will be open for those who can meet together to Pray.
Let's remind ourselves from the words of Matthew Henry, "When God is preparing to do something great, he sets his people to pray."
