‘Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.’ 
Dear Saints
Our opportunity to unite in prayer for a full 24 hours is just one week away, 19:00 Friday 5th to 19:00 Saturday 6th July. Our theme this month comes from Isaiah 32:2. The Lord longs to meet with everybody, everywhere, whatever way we choose, in prayer. We are all in! The link to the virtual 24 hour prayer room is:  https://signup.24-7prayer.com/signup/eb539c but we can also sign up on the OCOD board or just ask me to add your name!
Our Mission Focus for July is Mission Direct. Jan and Richard are presently in Uganda, but hope to Zoom into Prayer and Praise Together, from Kumi,19:00 Friday and lead us in prayer. They have kindly provided the prayers below. To join us on Zoom in this uplifting hour of worship please click on the link:  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82670522846
For all of us who are able to be a part of this, it would be lovely to hear how we spent our hour of prayer and to share any reflections, in order to encourage one another in our journeys with the Lord.
Enjoy being consciously present to the God who is constantly present to us.
Love and prayers
