Week of Prayer


Sunday 13th - Saturday 19TH January

‘Is not my word like fire,’ declares the Lord, ‘and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?...' (Jeremiah 23:29 NIV) 

God’s words are powerful; they create, they destroy. When God speaks we must listen.

Sometimes God chooses to speak through His people. Prophecy, simply put, is seeing what Jesus sees and saying what He says. It is a precious gift from the Holy Spirit and its primary purpose is to build up, encourage and comfort the church (1 Corinthians 14:3). Prophecy helps to give us God’s perspective.

When God says He will do something, we shouldn't just sit back and wait for it to happen...

  1. We can PRAY – one of the most powerful ways we can effectively pray is to intentionally pray back the promises of God. We take hold of what God has said and we say, “AMEN. Do it, Lord!”
  2. We can PREPARE – Sometimes we need to be proactive & prepare for what’s to come.

We're meeting together every evening from this Sunday (13th) to Saturday 19th (inclusive) at Brickfields to pray etc. for an hour from 7.45pm.  On four of the days we will focus on praying about things that God has said prophetically to City Church. Anna Goodman has set us up for this by looking back on the past 20 years of prophetic words and identifying four themes for us to pray about, coming before God saying, “Do these things, Lord! Show us what we need to do!” 

The other three days will be a bit different to normal and we'll be enjoying a variety of ways of engaging with God...

Do come to as many meetings as you can, and find other ways to prioritise praying about these things throughout the week too. Let's not come to "tick the box". Let's come in faith that God will hear us and act!
