At Young Adults, we had a number of prophetic images and as we prayed after the meeting, I started to see several of them converging together. There is a believer standing in a hallway looking at an open door with light shining out. Inside is the banquet that God has for us, but the believer […]

Over the next few weeks, we will be feeding back some of the words and prayers received from our week of prayer and fasting. This word came from Tanya, and it is a wonderfully encouraging word to pray and meditate on.  It reminds us that we are all called to the purposes that God has […]

We are almost at the end of our week of prayer and fasting.  How did you find the whole experience?  Setting aside time for God is always an experience as you never quite know what He will decide is the priority for the time. It’s definitely been worth it and over the coming weeks we […]

Last Sunday, Daniel spoke on repentance asking, what is it and how do you do it and why would you do this?  What’s interesting is that Phil was praying and received a word along a similar line from God.  I think the Lord is wanting us to hear Him on this subject and He is […]

The Pondering this week comes via Mrs Jesus Follower- who wrote this post before Julie spoke on Psalm 51 last Sunday: I’ve realised that a line from Psalm 51 has, of late, become a focus for me. It’s from a prayer of David’s that’s brought a freshness to my life. The line that has jumped […]

On that first Christmas, some 2000 years ago, a baby was born. He came into the world in much the same manner as all other babies of the time, without the aids of modern maternity facilities. But this was no ordinary baby. Jesus, as he was named, was God coming into this world as a […]

Making Joy Complete Recently we watched a video in Young-Adults group where John Piper was reading from C S Lewis in response to a question that a lot of people (particularly from an atheistic perspective) ask about God: Why does God want us to worship him?  Typically, we recognise the seeking of praise from others […]
