image-with-info

 

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”  Ezekiel 36:26-27

We all need to have our hearts renewed and refreshed, both as individuals and as a community. So come along, listen to what God is saying for now and the future- yours, St John’s and the community,

The Together Times are an opportunity to worship and pray together. At other times the room will be open as a place to meet with God, on your own, or with others. Come when you can for as long as you can, and please sign up for a slot so that prayer is constant for all of the 24 hours.

What is Prayer?

Prayer is being in communication with God
Abraham did it, Moses did it, King David did it, the prophets did it, JESUS did it, the disciples were taught to do it, the early church did it Acts 2:42
And now we do it.

Prayer can take many forms but is essentially ACTS
Adoration – worship
Confession – recognize, repent, receive, rebuke, replace.
Thanksgiving – being grateful for all God’s blessings
Supplication – asking God for others (intercession) or for ourselves
It is active and dynamic
It can be noisy- proclaiming God’s power, praying aloud, singing,
It can be quiet –listening to God, meditating on His word, Contemplating (using a picture or poetry)
It can be creative- painting, drawing, dancing, song writing or music making.
It can be short or long.
It can involve any or all of the above.
It may be different on different days and in different seasons.
It can be encouraging or a challenge.
But DON’T miss out because you don’t do it.
