Our latest prayer meeting was led by Irene and Lillian and took place in the Old Session Room. We thank God for the opportunity to talk to Him through prayer and to sing His praises. We look forward to our next prayer meeting and we will inform you of the date and time.

Here are our prayers.

Lillian and I want to thank you for taking time to stay behind for this prayer meeting. It is good we can support each other in this way.

We will start with singing Shine, Jesus, Shine.

I want to speak with you briefly on "The Power of Together/Team Work" . It seems to me, the older I get the greater appreciation I have for the power of doing things together with others.

God never intended us to travel this journey we call life alone. As a matter of fact, some of the greatest expressions of God love for us are seen in the incredible people He has surrounded us with - parents, brothers, sisters, spouses, children, friends and associates. The Power of Together is found wherever relationships exists.

This principle of togetherness is recorded on page after page and illustrated in story after story in the Bible - because here is the point I would like us to understand this morning - God’s provision in your life in almost every sphere is found in the context of the Power of Together. 

From eternity past where God dwelt in Holy Togetherness, to the dawn of human history in Adam and Eve, Togetherness has been the organising principle of a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Teamwork is all around us in life. We see it in marriages, businesses, neighbourhoods, churches, etc. God loves to see Christians working together. Think of Christianity as your local Morrisons. There is one store, but there are many different departments within that store. One department can do things another cannot, but they still have the same goal.

In Christianity there is one body, but there are many different functions. God has blessed us all differently. Some people are preachers, givers, singers, advice givers. We all have something to offer.

Some people are bolder, wiser, more confident, and have stronger faith than others. We all have different abilities, but our main goal and what we share in is God and to worship him together.

I want to finish with a few Quotes

  • “Teamwork makes the dream work.” 
  • “Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success.” 
  • “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much - Helen Keller
  • And my favourite:- TEAM – Together everyone achieves more.

Time for prayer...........

Amen

We will finish with singing Bind Us Together and if you could remain standing at the end we will say the Lords Prayer to each other.
