Dear praying family,

It’s that time of the month when children, youth and adults, the Quakers Road Church congregation and the Parish Church congregations, brothers and sisters who can no longer physically get to the church buildings, and those who are away or thriving in pastures new, unite in prayer for a full 24 hours.

The One Church One Day theme for December is ‘The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.’

It begins at 7pm next Friday 1st December on Zoom for an hour of Prayer & Praise Together The Mission Focus for December is our orphanage in India which Team India will be visiting on 14th December. Please find a list of prayer requests below.

The Sign Up board will be in the Quakers Road Church and Parish Church buildings, or you can sign up on the virtual Prayer Room board  by following the link.

There are as many different ways to pray as there are people in the world. Be free to spend your precious hour (or more!) with the Lord however you choose to. Maybe some will be writing Christmas cards, making or putting up decorations, or making/ planning/wrapping gifts! Maybe some will bake, walk, do housework, play, just sit and be with the Lord. Whatever we do it’s about being consciously present to the God who is constantly present to us, alongside 40-50 or more praying souls.

If you feel able to share any thoughts or reflections following your prayer time please do so, as it is such an encouragement and builds up the Body of Christ.

Love and prayers
