The power of specific prayer
For the past 10 weeks, Tom and Sarah Scrivens have been leading a Life Group focused on specific prayer, through their church in Ipswich. The group itself is an answer to their specific prayers for God to multiply groups within the church, and this week they just didn’t want to stop praying!
Spurgeon once said:
“Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom”
And Mark Batterson points out that:
“If our prayers aren’t specific, God gets robbed of the glory he deserves because we second guess whether or not he actually answered them.”
How has God been answering your specific prayers recently? We’d love to hear your stories - they encourage us and, more importantly, ensure that God gets the glory.
(Thanks to Tom for the quotes, which you can read in full in this post.)
Prayers for COURAGE
The conference is fast approaching. The conference team had their final pre-event meeting yesterday, and would appreciate your prayers for all the logistics to come together. Would you join us in praying? Here are some ideas, but ask God to lead you in the specifics that he wants to answer:
  • More bookings (online booking closes at 11:45pm TONIGHT) 
  • Health, strength and protection from spiritual attacks for all the team (on stage and behind the scenes)
  • Safety in travel and protection over people, vehicles and equipment as they make their way to the venue and around London during the conference
  • Good, restful sleep for the team as they are working hard, and often late into the night to make everything ready
  • That God would be glorified in every aspect of the conference, and that as we embark together on a new phase of our adventure together we will be filled with courage and with godly dreams and visions for the future.
Thank you. (And don’t forget to book in!)
To encourage you...
God has already answered one specific prayer, which is that Nick and Marlene Boyd were granted their visas to come and speak at the Sent conference. We’re looking forward to welcoming them and being inspired by their enthusiasm and testimony.

We had an amazing Prayer Sunday that showed how the Holy Spirit can move when we pray together. So why not join us tonight for our corporate prayer meeting at @chadwellchurch site 8pm and let's pray for God to show us what it means to walk humbly with Him as a church.

So gd to be prayed for as family last night @cccmedway. Shared plans for SENDING SUNDAY on 10th June when I'll step down from eldership & we'll be sent out to pioneer @HopeChurchME10. Lots of prophetic direction & confirmation. Feeling like a sharpened arrow in the Lord's hands.
Vanochtend was @MartienKikkert uit @elimreeuwijk bij ons te gast
Hij sprak over "gij zult geen vals getuigenis over de ander afleggen", maar dat geldt ook over onszelf. Heb je hem gemist? Luister na op #Hoograven #Lunetten #kerk
