LEADER'S PRAYER MORNING
Come spend a morning praying with fellow church leaders in Kent. With time to share, be encouraged, bring items for prayer & praise and a meditation on God's word, it is well worth a morning out from your normal routine. There is an option to stay for lunch if you have the time to.
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them
'This kind can come out only by prayer' (Mark 9:29)
This time of year is the busiest for most of us. Groups restart, regular preaching resumes, and all those meetings postponed until after the summer find a date in the diary. Right now, the danger for us all is that prayer gets squeezed out because we're just too busy. I am so glad that Mark preserves for us that private conversation Jesus had with his disciples after they failed to help a man's demon-possessed son. The disciples had gone through the motions, doing what they had always done, but had failed to draw strength and power from the one whose name they were meant to be doing it in! Dependent, believing prayer is what our Lord Jesus Christ is calling us to.
Will you and other leaders in your church, whether staff or elders, men or women, come together and pray for the gospel to go out from our churches not just with words, but with 'power, the Holy Spirit and deep conviction'? Just imagine what would happen if it did! We wouldn't need to design more church publicity or plan another mission- the changed lives of those converted would say it all to the people around!
Come to Grace Fellowship in Ashford on Thursday 5th October from 9:30am to 12:00pm and we'll pray for your church and other churches in Kent.
Richard Hagan, Chair of Kent Gospel Partnership
