In the first letter to Timothy Paul urges the young disciple: First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone.
We have been invited to be part of ten days of prayer throughout the county. Pauline Mack is travelling down the Severn and along the waterways of Shropshire to pray for the people and the places that she passes through. This is running concurrently with the week of prayer which Archbishops Justin and John have called in the week before Pentecost.
In Bridgnorth we will be praying for twenty four hours in the Rectory Room. You are invited to join in for any part of the time. Sign up for half an hour or an hour anytime between 3pm on Wednesday May 11th and 3pm Thursday May 12th. There will be prayer pointers and someone on hand to encourage you.
It is great fun as well as hard work to be part of such an endeavour.
Even if you haven’t been part of something like this before do come and find out. The door of the Rectory will be open, and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to give you energy.
We believe prayer changes people, families, workplaces, communities and nations. as Christians we are called to pray for everyone – see 1 Timothy 2:1. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are encouraging Christians of all denominations and traditions to pray the words of the Lord’s Prayer during the week leading up to Pentecost.
Any questions or to sign up please contact Simon or Sarah on 01746 761573.
