Let It Grow

Just a short blog today – you get time off for good behaviour!

Last Sunday we heard a great talk from Rob Lea about the importance of prayer and making a habit of praying.
I hope you will take seriously the invitation to say the Lord’s Prayer every day for 60, 90, 120 days – or every day!

I have used the prayer card we were given as a bookmark in my study bible, thus ensuring I have a daily reminder to say the prayer – and I will!

Can I add another prayer request? Hot on the heels of my last blog about how Paul planted, Apollos watered but God gave the growth (of the church), please would you pray that EBC grows?

It struck me this morning that this is a blindingly obvious thing that we should be doing as a church family every day – and the more of us the better. If you’re not sure what to say, keep it simple and maybe try this -
Dear God, thank you for my church family. Please, please bring us spiritual and numerical growth. For your name and your glory. Amen.

Please join me in this prayer – after all, the very act of praying will surely lead to our own spiritual growth and I’m pretty sure God will honour this prayer. For all our planning and strategizing, it remains true that only God can grow His church, so why on Earth wouldn’t we ask him?

Come on church – let’s pray!
