The prayers of many

It was an honour to have Relational Mission leader MIKE BETTS with us yesterday. Mike brought us a rousing message about the importance of corporate prayer, which is significant in its timing for us at Community Church as we launch our mulit-faceted ADVENTURES IN PRAYER initiative.


If you don't know what ADVENTURES IN PRAYER is yet, find out more here.

Colin explains more...

"What a timely visit and word from Mike Betts calling us corporate prayer of intercession. This resonates with what the elders believe God has been calling Community Church into through ADVENTURES IN PRAYER. Mike also highlighted that this call to prayer is also being echoed throughout many movements of God's church in many nations.
Mike used a powerful analogy of a young child persistently asking her grandad for sweets as she knows he has them in his pocket, and that because she know's his nature she'll persistently keep asking him for them as he won't be able to resist her requests! Mike used the example of the importunate widow, persistent to the point  of annoyance in her prayers to Him, and encouraged us to be the same.

We know who God is, and we know what (promises) he has for us, so we should be persistent in asking for the things that He has placed on our hearts until we have them. In this season for Community Church this means social impact and revival in our town.

Upcoming opportunities to get involved:

- the next BOILER ROOM - 15th March
- the next ENOUGH Half-night of prayer 29th March

Come and join together in the prayers of many"

Enough is enough!

When is Enough Enough?

Enough was enough when my little sister ate a whole box of 12 large cream eclairs at one sitting!

Enough was enough when Jesus cried ‘ it is finished’ before His final breath on the cross.

But ‘Enough’ will not be enough prayer until Jesus returns to wrap-up life on earth as it is and usher in life on the new earth as He promised.

Three times a year the ‘Enough’ half-nights of prayer run throughout the Relational Mission family of churches in the UK and overseas to call on God to act decisively in this world and in the lives of people we know who need Him, whether they realize it yet or not.

We’re going to keep calling on God like the persistent widow Jesus spoke of ‘to teach us to pray and not give up’.

‘Enough’ is not yet enough!
