Life Prayerwatch 9th November 2014

Our next Life Prayerwatch is coming up this Sunday and so we wanted to give you a heads up on what we would be praying about.

Worship with the Word

1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
— Psalm 1:1-3

Psalm 1 speaks of our call as Christians to follow the ways of the Lord not the wisdom of the age. We all hear so many different voices offering wise council but the only source of true wisdom is God who IS wisdom and we receive it through His Word and His Spirit.  As we spend some time meditating on His word He will release His Spirit of wisdom and revelation inspiring our thoughts and our intercession.


Our main topic for intercession will be the church in Manchester and the region, for wisdom, clarity and boldness in addressing the issue of abortion.  Abortion has become a taboo topic within the church and due to a lack of clear, biblical, Spirit-led and sensitive teaching, confusion and a lack of understanding cloud the issue causing many to have been hurt both outside and inside the church regarding abortion.  As we approach the end of 2014 lets pray together that 2015 would be a year of release, both for those hurt by abortion and for the church in its silence.
