Thursday to Sun night Nov 2015
Praying for Bognor I felt like people often think ‘can anything good come out of Bognor?’ just like they thought about Jesus ‘can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Here, in this room, are examples of people who are agents of change in this town. Flowers in a desolate place. I feel positive that there are people who love Bognor and prayer and action will change things.
Bognor be proud be strong for the Lord your God is with you. Seeing Bognor’s gifts. Celebrating what is great, releasing joy and love for more, greater things. Psalm 145 Praying for greater positivity about our town.
Jesus is knocking at our door. Seeking the welcome he deserves. If any of us are willing, He will come in and share Himself and His plans with us. Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only does wondrous things. Blessed be His glorious name forever…. Let the whole earth be filled with His glory Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen
Group of 8-10 people came and prayer walked round Bognor. Jamie spoke about tree of life in the middle of Bognor where there used to be a church. One felt angelic activity. Flowers in the desert and beautiful Bognor!
Visited by Open Gate youth and Salvation Army children – praying for revival in Bognor Regis, especially among the youth
Less stress in Bognor – more healing of hearts, minds and bodies…Open your doors to the spiritually hungry and thirsty so they may drink and live!
Lighthouse Prayer: we took Scriptures off the walls and declared them. We prayed for Arun Angels and for new vision and volunteers, and for the Gideons.
Inspired by Eva Rouffet’s tent decoration – God’s kingdom lives – and William Booth ‘Making heaven on earth is our business.’
Saw numerous fiery arrows flow towards the prayer requests on the prayer wall – arrows landing in each one. His presence manifest.
We stood in front of the map of Bognor and prayed for children and for God’s love (as fathers of adopted children). We stood in front of the end prayer wall, and prayed that the prayer needs become stories, and thanked God for his healing, and asked him to help us take and carry more any prayers/needs that needed further prayer. Your healing is all around us!
We also prayed for a new dawn for our beautiful town, as the dark night became lighter, and as the sun was becoming ready to rise.
Hotch-potch, or maybe potpourri prayer time. Prayed for ‘prayer room’ situations. Praying for those in churches who are on the ‘fringe’, perhaps getting used to being accepted for who they are, that God would break through and bring transformation to their lives and their families, for the mums who bring their children, that husbands and partners would be saved too. May heaven come down and glory fill their soul! For Mess Church in this building and in other churches, that families, especially the vulnerable and dysfunctional would find acceptance, love and a relationship with Jesus.
This week I have visited the prayer room many times, lots of different things brought me here. But Thursday morning I brought a friend up and I have always been very shy about speaking a prayer, but Thurs 19th I said my first spoken prayer and it was the most amazing uplifting experience. I truly felt connected to our Lord, I feel new and stronger in my faith and I feel so very blessed to have had the opportunity to reaffirm my love of God. Amen.
