We would like to live stream our time of prayer together this Sunday on YouTube. We are in the process of learning how this can be done.
We will let you know how to access the link once we have set up the systems by Saturday evening. We will up date you mostly through Facebook, WhatsApp and through emails and text.
We are suggesting we pray together at least once a day using the following times; 9am and 7pm
Don’t worry if these are not convenient find your own rhythm. It would be useful if you had the means to write down your own things to pray about as well.
Why not use the phone and identify three or four people family and friends who you can commit to contacting each day. If they find themselves in need then please do contact us and we will do our best to help.
We miss you and yet believe in this challenging time God is calling us to pray more and so using Paul’s prayer from Ephesians so this is our prayer to you …. Perhaps you could pray it on?

Paul Prays for Love to Overflow
Ephesians 3:14-21 (The Passion Translation)
14 So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, 15 the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. 16 And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favour until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.17 Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
18–19 Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!
20 Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.
21 Now we offer up to God all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen
