Hey there, it would be great to see you at the next Pause and Pray! We will be meeting at Opengate Church on Victoria Drive at 7:30pm, just for an hour.
We want to come along ready to stand together for our town, ready to see a change. We want to pray for a blessing and favour, for a hope and a future for all the children and young people in our town.
There are so many needs: we need to think about the teachers and parents, for all the adults that those young people rely on. For provision, sometimes at the level of food, shelter and clothing. For education, especially for those facing exams at this time of year. For good choices. For those moving away from Bognor, and for those who have just moved in Bognor.
All the children and young people in Bognor belong to God. All of them need God’s protection and care. There will be particular young people you have a responsibility for: come along with them on your heart. There will be needs that you will hear about as we pray that will flame out and give you new prayer burdens, new action burdens too.
Gavin Calver in a video on ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, the prayer initiative that starts on Thursday this week and continues until May 20th, says that when we say ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ to God, anything can happen. We think we know what future we want for the young people in our town, but God has a more glorious future for them than we can imagine. Not just small changes, but big ones.
Big changes start with small changes, and change starts with prayer.
See you there!
Ben and Kemi
