Prayer Day

The other Saturday our church had a Prayer Day (actually it was six hours) All the seasons were in hourly slots, people could come and go as was suitable to them.

Now like all of us I pray at home on my own, but it was uplifting to join my prayers with others because individual and corporate prayer are both necessary in our Christian lives. Due to covid praying together has been very limited. On that Saturday it was a blessing to be away from the phone, social media and family distractions to be able to devote a time of praying and listening to God in the presence of others. Jesus often prayed alone (sometimes all night) but He also prayed with His disciples.

‘Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire, uttered or unexpressed.’ James Montgomery
