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.

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"
