Subject: Prayer & Praise #19 Sunday 27th September – Overflowing Love

Dear All,

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective – James 5:16

In some words of Carl Laferton – Many of us have been prompted to pray more by the crisis we are living through. But equally, many of us are unsure precisely how to pray and what to ask. How can you pray prayers that are powerful and effective – that change things? First, by being a child of God. Second, by praying Bible prayers, which use God’s words, to make sure that your prayers are pleasing to Him and share His priorities.

If you want to find out more about this, it is taken from a book by Rachel Jones titled “5 things to pray in a global crisis”

Come, now is the time to worship

Please see the link to this service below and as you watch and worship, allow God to show His overflowing love in your life.





God Bless

Robert Jennens

Lovely quotes

Why God made friends: he never intended for us to walk alone through life – that is why He created friends.  He places these special people in our path to walk with us.
