When people talk about establishing new, healthy patterns in life, they often try to break it down into smaller, achievable chunks.
So, to get people more active, they encourage people to walk half an hour a day for three days a week.
Every week on Saturday morning at 7.30am, our church gets together for only half an hour to pray through the many prayer points on our weekly prayer bookmark.
If you’ve never joined us before, then you are more than welcome to just listen and pray the prayers said by others.
On outward appearances, it’s a pretty unimpressive event in the life of our church… but in reality it’s one of the most important things that we do each week.
But it is at this meeting that we show our dependence on God… and rejoice in his answers to our prayers.
As we are reminded in Philippians, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Are you able to invest thirty minutes a week to join with others at church to relieve our anxiety and enjoy his peace that comes Jesus?
