24/7 Prayer Event

Start Advent in Prayer!
Jesus said ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life’ John 8.12
Please join a 24h chain of prayer from Saturday 2nd December 6pm till Sunday 3rd December 6pm and choose an hour (or more!) to pray for this advent season. The simple purpose for this is firstly for our own spiritual preparation to pause and spend time with Jesus as we get ready to celebrate his birth, to help us remain open to him and his leading in the midst of what is a busy time for many. Secondly it will be great to bath in prayer all the various events that will take place over the Christmas season sharing God’s love and the good news of Jesus which continues to change lives. And for all the ways we as individuals can be a blessing to others this advent, especially to anyone who finds Christmas time difficult.
This will be a ‘virtual’ chain so you can pray from the comfort of your own home either by yourself or by gathering together as a family or with friends.
During this 24h period, there will also be an opportunity to pray in person on Sunday 3rd December between 12 noon and 4pm at St Luke’s in Morton. Advent related prayer stations will serve as prompts to help guide our prayers, these will be suitable for young and old alike. You can pop in for just 10minutes or for a whole hour or more during these hours. Hot drinks and prayer prompts available.
Further suggestions on what and how to pray for an hour at home will be available from Sunday 26th, but for now please book your time, let’s make it a full circle including the small hours (!). Prayer is powerful and changes lives, let’s be expectant of God’s transforming presence in us and in our community this Christmas.
