Prayer & Fasting
Just got back from the Newfrontiers Prayer and Fasting in Derby. 600 orso leaders all gathered together for two days of mighty prayer and nofood.
The emphasis this time was calling on God for his mighty move in ournation. We currently have 191 Churches in the UK and need to surge past200.We prayed for the 20 plants that could become Churches this year.What was exciting for me was that were spread out to all four cornersof our nations. 15 years ago we were a Southern movement and it wasgreat to see plants in Scotland, Wales and the South West as well asthe North and the Midlands on the list. Time didn’t allow for prayerfor the 2008 plants like us!
We also prayed with expectancy for a mighty move of God to bringrevival. Terry talked about us being ankle deep (alluding to Ezekiel47) – we want to be swimming in the river of God.
During the breaks I got the opportunity to preach in Rushden in May at our new plant there called New Life Church and also chatted to the Dereham and Attleborough guys about how we could bless them in March when we visit.
The next edition of econnect will feature the recent King’s Lynn day – I’m praying some of the readers may be stirred to join us in the adventure
