This version corrects a mistake from the issue sent out on 20th October.

Come Pray With Me

Nathan Haddock's book Come Pray With Me is being offered free of charge.

He says on his website 

"If your “Prayer Life” is sorted, then this book is not for you!​

For everyone else, who struggles with prayer in some way, this book is a must. Even the most chatty of us sometimes find ourselves lost for words when it comes to speaking with God, this book is here to help.

Not Your Usual Prayer Book

Unlike most prayer books, that are packed with ancient prayers with little relevance to us today, this book is full of new prayers that have already helped and inspired many people all over the world in the 21st Century. Written by Christian Blogger Nathan Haddock, these prayers will help you find the words you need in everyday situations, in times of need, and at any time when you’re just not too sure what to say. These prayers can not only help your personal prayer life but can be used in churches, in groups, or anywhere else where you need to pray. Inspired by people such as Max Lucado, Francis Chan and A.W. Tozer, Nathan first started praying for people while counseling people as part of a Billy Graham Crusade in London in 1989.

Not only are these prayers a useful tool for your prayer life, but they are also packed with Godly truth and wisdom that will help you to explore whole new areas of prayer. If you are new to prayer or feel your prayer life could use a boost, this series of books will give you the lift you need."

Prayers and Intercessions Workshop

How do we lead other in prayer?

I will be offering the Prayers and Intercessions Workshop again on Wednesday 20th January 2021 - 11am-1pm

This interactive workshop for Local Worship Leaders will look at why we pray, the difference between private prayer, public prayer and intercession, and how we lead others in prayer.

We will look at different ways to pray, how to construct our own prayers for public worship, how to have confidence in leading prayer, and creative ways to help others pray.
