Today let’s pray for all the outreaches we are involved with in church and personally. We want to be a church which is constantly reaching out to others with the love of Christ whether abroad in India, Africa and Romania or right here in Manchester and Salford.
If you haven’t read Pastor Paul’s blog post from yesterday please do, as it is really to the point and fits right in with this theme.
Lord, may we be sensitive to your compassionate heart, open our eyes and make us aware of the desperate needs around us. Give us opportunities to share the love of Jesus with others.
The Lighthouse provides so many opportunities to get involved in outreach. Living Waters, the Prisons team, involvement in the Narrowgate homeless shelter and local hostels, the Club Nights hosted by MVMT, the Pop-up Cafés organized by Jenny Taylor, the Breakfast Club at Ellesmere School that Ps Jesse heads up … and much more!! Pray for all these outreaches. We know that all the time and effort put into these will be of no effect without the presence of the Lord. Pray that we will see and increase of his presence in our outreach events and that many will be powerfully touched by God. Pray that God will inspire new outreaches and initiatives among us.
We will very soon be launching our C groups, which will include bible study groups, prayer groups, social groups who will connect with those outside the church and new to church, and outreach groups like the prisons team. Please pray today particularly for the social and outreach groups, that these will be nets that the Lord may use to catch many souls.
