Ten Days Of Prayer

Thursday 9th May 2024 – Saturday 18th May 2024

Abiding in Jesus Through His Holy Spirit!

Romans 8:26 – “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.”

Jesus encouraged his disciples that after his departure he would send the Holy Spirit that will guide them into all truth. Let us seek to experience more of the Spirit more frequently in our lives, and that we will be the empowered church that God has ordained us to be. 

As we come into these Ten Days of Prayer let us open ourselves to the leading of the Holy Spirit about decisions that we face daily in our individual lives and as a church. Let us pray that our lives will continue to glorify God in all that we do.

Prayer Programme

There will be opportunities for praying together as a whole church and as Life Groups. If you belong to Community Church you will be in a Life Group and we are encouraging Life Groups to devote their meeting to prayer, on Zoom, or in person and maybe gather to go prayer walking in your area. It would be great if you could join us for at least one of the whole church meetings outlined above. Also we want to encourage you to arrange to meet in small groups to prayer, prayer walk together during these 10 days.

However, we also want to encourage you to make your personal prayer time during these 10 days focussed on the prayer points outlined so that together we can seek the Lord. It would also be good for each of us to have a day of fasting during these 10 days and please liaise with your Life Group to see if you could do this on the same day together.

If you feel that the Lord is showing you anything during this time please email elders@mycommunitychurch.org.uk
