Childrens Talk 29th November, 2020
2 Corinthians 4 v 8-9: We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
What a blessing and a privilege it is, to come and stand in the presence of the Lord through the gift of prayer.
When we bring our prayers today, remember that you are talking to the maker of the heavens and the earth, and when you pray your almighty God is listening to your prayers, both the prayers you pray out loud and the prayers which you will pray from the depths of your heart.
As you come before Him today, we pray you will know His presence in a very special way, and we pray He hears and answers our prayer for His glory.
We look forward to seeing you all at 7.30pm tonight via zoom, to close out the day of prayer as we thank the Lord for the time we have had with him.
Romans 8 v 26: In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
Below is a list of prayer items you can pray about, but you will have many more things to say and bring before your Lord.

Your Kingdom come,

on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is kingdom,
the power and the glory.
for ever and ever.
Day of Prayer
28th November 2020
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
