Before our eldest goes away over half term, volunteering as a dorm leader at a young peoples’ Christian House Party, I am trying to encourage her to FaceTime her grandma. Technology is amazing these days, to the effect that through the internet, my mum probably sees more of her youngest grandchildren across in the States in Seattle, than she does with those on these shores. As it used to be stated in the old BT adverts; “It’s good to talk”.
At PCC earlier this week, we looked at the topic of prayer, and came to the realisation that not only is it "good (for us) to talk" to God, but that it is something that God equally delights in. Imagine…our prayers make a difference to the Almighty, the King of creation! As well as it being of benefit to us, it is also to the benefit of the One in whose image we are made. I suspect that we’ll be exploring many of the possibilities of prayer in future months to come within the life of church. For the meantime though, I’m also encouraged that post Covid, we now as church feel it’s appropriate to re-introduce the opportunities to share in and receive prayer ministry. Taking place towards the end and beyond the morning service on a 4th Sunday (this one coming), there will be opportunities to bring before God, situations big and small with others who would love to pray with and for you.
So remember for both His and our sake, “it’s good to talk”!
Keep in touch
Keep the faith.
