Prayers

At its heart the Christian faith is about a relationship with God. All relationships rely on communication, ours with God is no different.  Prayer is simply speaking to Him and allowing Him to speak to us in various ways. We firmly believe that God hears our prayers and that they do make a difference. 

Jesus taught us to pray to God as our Father. This can be tough if we’ve been treated badly by our own parents. But God is the perfect parent, always wanting the best for us, always listening to us, always answering our prayers, in His time and in His way. Sometimes it’s only when we look back on a situation that we can see God has answered our prayers. 

Christians believe we live in a world which is far from perfect. It’s like this because the human race has largely turned its back on God. We, all Christians included, have troubles; sometimes huge ones, so do the people we know and love. Prayer enables us to take all these things to God. Jesus promises to carry our burdens if only we’ll let Him and we can find a tremendous release just by letting things go to God, by trusting that he loves us a perfect parent and that we and those we love are safest when we are close to Him in prayer. 

You may post your prayers about anything you like. Just use simple everyday language and be honest – that’s all God asks. Once the prayer is posted we believe God hears and he will in time answer. We promise to pray for you or those who want us to pray from the time you post daily for a month or longer if you re- post an updated prayer. Please do let us know of any answers to prayer you receive.

Church Partnerships

Apart from all our Anglican connections local, regional and world wide, we are in local partnership with the Methodist, Salvation Army, United Reformed Church, Roman Catholic Church, Evangelical Community Church, the Nazarene Church and others as the circle spreads further.
