Not just for summer

By Tony Villiers

I've been blessed by seeing so many new folks coming along to Grace Church over the summer. If one of them is you and you're reading this then please feel free to visit us again very soon.

The autumn is often a time of change – for this blogger it will be a change of habit as I plan to get fit on the bike I've just received for my birthday (Church, please keep me accountable)! Committing to a church is a very positive change we can make, whether it's to Grace Church or one of the other great churches in MK who seek to honour the Bible and welcome the Spirit. So, we’d love to see you again but whether you join us or not we hope to do you good.

A call to prayer

 Jon Kempster

I recently came across this fantastic quote from Arthur W Pink: 'Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude - an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God.'

It got me thinking about how important it is for us to persevere in communicating with our heavenly Father. I don't think the value of prayer can be stressed enough! This connection is our lifeline, and the blessed privilege of every child of God, not some chore we just go through the motions of.

It's such a comfort to be able to take all our needs to the Lord with the full confidence that he hears us. When our hearts are overwhelmed and we're shaken by our circumstances, it's through prayer that we are led to the Rock, Christ Jesus, that is higher than we are and can never be shaken.

It's through prayer that we lay hold of a peace that surpasses all understanding and guards our hearts and minds. It's through prayer that we can plead for the lost people we know, that they will be found through salvation in Christ.

There's an incredible power unleashed when a church gathers together in prayer. God responds to our unified commitment and willingness to petition him. We have a church prayer meeting every month and meet at 10am each Sunday before the service. Please can I encourage you to join us on these occasions so that we might hear from God more clearly and bring all we do before him.

Before this day ends, I urge you to pray. As Martin Luther powerfully put it: 'Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, but laying hold of his willingness.'
