From Rev. Keith...
l wonder what was the first prayer you learned? We taught our children to pray at bedtime, saying “Be near me, Lord Jesus! I ask Thee to stay close by me for-
I attended a C/E primary school and every morning or afternoon session ended with
The lord’s Prayer, which l found very reassuring as a ohild. We continue to say or
Sing 'Our Father..,' in most services, hopefully in a thoughtful mindful way.
What about the Words “Thy Kingdom come” what does that mean in you? In one sense
the reign of God comes into my life, and the lives of others, when we accept Jesus as our
Personal Saviour and the Lord into our lives.
From Ascension to Pentecost we are asked to pray “Thy Klngdorn Come". Booklets have
already been distributed at St Johns, hopefully to every member The challenge in
our circuit is to form Prayer Triplets with 2 or snore prayer partners and no meet informally
at a time and place to suit you.
I suggest that if each person prays for say 3 people who they would love to tum to Christ, then each Prayer Triplet would be praying for 9 or more people to some to faith. As we pray l believe God will reveal ways in which he can use us to achieve the answer to our prayers. .lames 5:15 (KJV) "confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
May God bless you richly as you pray?
God bless you. Keith.
