Dear Praying Family
Firstly, thank you so much for praying over Team India’s mission trip to Haven Home. We arrived home yesterday afternoon and have so many stories of God’s answers to those prayers. We can’t wait to share with you and will arrange an evening to do so soon. God is great!
What better way to start the year than with our great God in prayer! The beautiful words of comfort from Psalm 139 above are our theme for January. Our mission focus for January is Mission Direct and Richard has kindly shared prayer requests which are below.
One Church One Day is a great opportunity for us to unite in prayer and yet also have the freedom to pray in whatever reflective, active or creative way works best for each one of us personally.
We begin as always on the first Friday of the month. 19:00 Friday 5th to 19:00 Saturday 6th January. To book an hour’s prayer time click on https://signup.24-7prayer.com/signup/2a06c9 or use the white board. OCOD begins at 19:00 with an uplifting hour of Prayer & Praise Together on Zoom and all are welcome https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82670522846
It’s always so encouraging to hear how people spend their hour with the Lord, and to receive any words, thoughts, pictures or reflections. Please do share if you are able.
May God bless us and others through us richly in 2024.
Happy New Year
