“We must not grow weary of doing little things for the love of God, who looks not on the great size of the work, but on the love in it.” (Brother Lawrence)
THE Christian Life is prayer through and through – nothing more or nothing less. Prayer looks eagerly towards God with desire. And, we are called to pray until our face “looks worn by prayer (Diary of a Country Priest, 1974). Prayer needs practice – practice that becomes a habit, spreading deep roots in our life. The practice of prayer expands and opens our hearts to the generosity of God’s love – love that re-shapes us into the image and likeness of God in Christ. In prayer, the heartbeat of our life-together, we make ourselves available to God and God’s love, desiring God’s love into becoming our love. Hence, through prayer we become channels of God’s love for the world.
Here is an invitation for you to join us in praying for the United Reformed Church, our Reformed family of Churches, for our Ecumenical (global and local) partners, and for Partner Churches from around the world.
Each month, commencing from June 2013, we will generate a list of prayer needs for which we invite all to pray for. It will not be an exhaustive list and readers may wish to add other specific prayer needs.
So let us pray….
