PRAYER

‘To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing’ – Martin Luther

During this time of Coronavirus pandemic it is vitally important that we continue to pray to the God who loves us.  Some of the opportunities to gather to pray with one another physically are not possible at present.  However prayer can happen in many ways and prayer is always possible.  Some additional prayer support is detailed below as well as information about prayer opportunities when ore churches are open again.

Prayer Leaflet for Prisons

‘Our prayers may be awkward; our attempts may be feeble; but since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference’ – Max Lucado
