At the end of March, we launched the 21 Days of Prayer. During the month of April, we will be praying for specific things. One of the most essential things we can pray for is people to come to know Jesus.

The Bible tells us that God is our Heavenly Father and that we are all part of one big family. One thing we will be focussing on during our prayer time is family, and we start the month by praying for whole families to come to know the Lord. Also, we are inviting every family in the area to join us on Easter Sunday Morning.

We are having a special day of prayer for the youngest members of our families – children and young people. In Proverbs we read “Start children off the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Jesus told His disciples to let the children come to Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them too. They are not just the church of tomorrow but the church of today!

We are also thinking of friends who do not know Jesus. don’t forget to choose three friends to pray with, and three friends to pray for, and pick up a payer triplet card from reception.

Sometimes we will be meeting at the church to pray together, other times we will be praying at home, either on our own or with friends. Don’t forget to pick up a leaflet from reception which tells you what to pray for each day.

Remember – the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective – James 5:16
