Prayer is talking with God. We pray because the world needs God and so do we. We pray together as a community when we are gathered on Sundays and as Little Church communities, not to mention being scattered as individuals or as families.
He is listening - whatever we ask, think or imagine, God is able to do immeasurably more. The key however is listening to God and knowing what He is saying to us. With this in mind we are committed to helping each other discover a personal life of prayer – one that also involves a daily pattern of worship and scripture.
The way we do that is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Take what time you can in your day, whether that’s just 6 minutes, 15 minutes or a whole half hour. Split it in 3:
- 1 Worship: Sing songs, read psalms, dance like no-one’s watching. Speak out praise, write your own ‘psalms’, shout for joy. Step outside, revel in the creation you find yourself in.
- 2 Bible: Catch up on your Bible in One Year, asking yourself: What does this passage tell me about God? What does this passage tell me about us?
- 3 Prayer: Pray for your knots, invite the Holy Spirit into your day. Pray for our Little Churches dotted around the city and for Bristol itself to see the transformation that comes from Jesus. Pray for the world; for those affected by natural disasters, war, famine and terrorism. Pray for God’s Kingdom to come.
We’d love to encourage you to join in with the prayer life here – everyone is welcome to get involved.
