Jesus said: "This then is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven...' " (Matthew 6v9)
We're grateful that the Lord continues to encourage us and provide for our needs. Over the last couple of weeks, I've felt that we have "settled in" as a church, and we're now to start "looking around". This means we need to begin considering how we bring the gospel to the community around us. Please pray that the Lord will direct us in his will.
We're having an open house this Sunday afternoon, and inviting a variety of people. Praise God that we have a home so suitable for giving hospitality. Please pray that we'll have confidence to share the gospel in love as we share food and conversation.
Please pray for our church family: that the Lord would restore health to those who are unwell; give wisdom to those who are facing complicated situations; and provide work for those who are seeking it.
We're grateful to God for help that we'll receive this Sunday morning from Newtown. Please pray that God will bless those leading and teaching. Pray for me as I'll be meeting the elders on Monday evening to update them on WCC.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
