October Prayer Diary
I urge, then, first of all that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
1Tim 2:1- 4
Prayer is a gift. God has given each and every one of us the opportunity to address him directly. Moreover, not only is prayer a gift in itself, but God answers prayers with further gifts.
If you have a concern you would like others to pray for you can contact our confidential prayer chain.This is simply a text prayer message that is sent around some praying people in Maze.
Other places we pray
- Prayer is a central part of the fellowship of our church. As we meet to look at God’s word together there is time to pray with and for one another as the bible encourages us to do.
- Jesus reminded his followers of the reality of his presence when he said that he was present even when 2 or 3 are gathered together. So we encourage church members to be part of a prayer triplet where we can pray with 2 other people regularly at a suitable time.
- On alternate Wednesdays (at 8pm in the Church Hall) the church has another opportunity to meet together and pray for ourselves, our community and our world.
- Many of the needs of our organisations and some publicly requested prayer needs are published each month in our Church Prayer Diary which reminds us all of the need to leave all these thoughts with God and seek his answer.
