Here at Renewal we want to encourage you towards effective prayer. So often prayer is a last resort but we want to make it the first thing we do in every situation.
‘Announce a time of fasting;
call the people together for a solemn meeting.
Bring the leaders
and all the people of the land
into the Temple of the Lord your God,
and cry out to him there.’
Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough; whether things are good or bad, we try to pray before we do anything. In order for it to become a part of our life and church, prayer should be something we look forward to doing. We want you to discover the beauty of conversation with Him and experience the presence of God that will change your life. Moreover, we look forward to praying together, as when we have that connection we can truly be family.
Before any day begins, before you go to bed. Before you go to work or school, be at home or out in your neighbourhood. Before you send that text, WhatsApp, Tweet or post any image. Before you eat, drive or travel. When bad things happen, before bad things happen. After the day is over, after we have received that news, after we are made aware of someone else’s life event. In every situation it’s prayer time!
You can pray on the move or in stillness, at home in a favourite place or at the same time every day. You can pray morning, noon or night – whatever works, it is your prayer time. The most important thing is that we set a period and try and keep to it!
There are also plenty of opportunities to pray with us at Renewal. See below for services and specific prayer times that you can come along too.
