Week of Prayer and Fasting

9477132_sDuring this next week, join with us as we pray and fast; seeking the Lord for the coming year.

The Lord has been faithful and blessed us in so many ways. Let us offer thanks and praise for all He has done. Pray that He would continue to establish and grow His Vineyard church in Harrogate. Pray that we would see the fruit of his promises in our lives and in the life of our church.

Our vision is help people find and follow Jesus. Let’s pray for opportunities and boldness to speak of Jesus with the people we meet in our daily lives. Pray for growth in the church and that we would see the people the Lord is leading to us and invite them in.

We want to bless our community. Pray for the give-aways, the parties, the times of gathering; that God’s love would be evident in all we do.

We have grown! Give thanks to God for this and pray for the new housegroup beginning in February. Pray God would bring increase to both groups and they would be places of worship, friendship and safety. Pray also for the establishment of a monthly Sunday Night service.

Let us pray for one another and for our own relationship with Jesus. Pray we would hear His voice and know Him more this year. Let us be open to His calling in our lives. Pray for us (Nik and Maggie and our girls) as we lead the church.

Take some time to meditate upon Matthew 14:22-36.

The Lord has placed this scripture on our hearts for the coming season. As you read and listen to His voice, note down what is or any pictures that come to mind. We truly believe that ‘everyone gets to play’ and so would really value your prayers, reflections and words from the Lord.
