prayer

Here at St Paul's we want to root everything we do in prayer. As one of our two underlying values, Biblical and Prayerful, being a prayerful church means both encouraging one another in our personal prayer lives as well as providing space for us to pursue God in prayer as a church community.

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come, taken from the Lord's Prayer, is the name given by the Church of England for the 10 days of prayer around the world between Ascension (21st May 2020) and Pentecost (31st May 2020)  

We also use the name for all our midweek gatherings which specifically focus on  prayer and worship through the year.

 

Thy Kingdom Come 2020


Morning Prayer - 9am - 9:30am

From Thursday 21st May - Saturday 30th May (not including Sunday 24th) we'll gather on Zoom for morning prayer, led by a member of the team. Each day there will be a short thought based on scriptures, with specific things to pray for - before we break into smaller groups to pray. 

Church Family Prayer Gathering - Sunday 24th May, 7:30pm

This will be our next church family prayer gathering on Zoom which, as we've done previously, will include some input on topics before we pray in small groups.

Coffee and Cake after the Service - Sunday 31st May, 11am

Pentecost is the birthday of the church, and we'd love to invite you to bring some cake and coffee and join us on Zoom after the service on Sunday 31st May at 11am. We'll put you into randomly allocated smaller groups to chat for 15 mins, before bringing you back and putting you in a different group (You're welcome to bring two pieces of cake, one for each group!).

How to access these:

Details have been sent to church family members, please contact office@stpl.org.uk if you would like to be with us.

Ascension Day Prayer - Thursday 21st May, 9pm

We would like to invite the church family to once again, light a candle in their windows on Ascension day, remembering that Jesus is the light of the world. Join Adam and Jess as they do this in their own home and lead us in a short prayer at 9pm and then following the broadcast, spend some time in your homes, praying for the world.
 

Live Worship Evening - Tuesday 26th May, 7:45pm

Jess and I will host an evening of live prayer and worship from our home which we hope will have some of the elements included in our extended worship evenings held at St Paul's in the past, with times of sung worship, and time to simply sit and soak in God's presence. Do bring a journal and a bible, and feel free to be in your PJs!


Our online church services will continue at 10am on Sunday mornings. 

All these events will be on Facebook and Youtube as our current Sunday morning services are.

 

Individual Prayer


Any church is made up of its members rather than a collection of buildings, and our hope is that we would be a community of people who pray and intercede for ourselves, each other and the world.  However you connect, we hope that you will find time and space to draw near to God in prayer. 
 
Quiet Times
 
Setting time aside is the first thing we need to do in order to pray. In Lent 2018 Jonathan (our vicar) and Juliet Jee produced some simple booklets for those who haven't tried having a quiet time with God before.

Wherever we are in our journey with God, sometimes we all find it helpful to have someone pray with us.  Regardless of if you are a member of St Paul's or not, we'd love to pray with you. When we meet, prayer ministry is available following all of our Sunday services - longer periods of prayer ministry are available through appointment, please speak to Adam (our Curate) for more details.

Whilst we are not meeting as a gathered church, we'd still love to pray with you.  We can do this via phone or Zoom (a video conferencing service) please contact Adam (details below) and he will ask a member of our prayer ministry team to be in touch.

Whether you need physical healing or breakthrough in your spiritual life this is for you. This might include having difficulty in hearing, seeing or sensing Him, or issues such as fear, anxiety, jealousy, addiction, bitterness or anger.
