This week turned out to be a bit manic for travelling. It started with a quick trip down the road to Guildford after our Boiler Room prayer time here in Reading. Phil Evans, Cally Gee, Carla Trundle (top 24-7 types one and all!) and myself were catching up on delegate details for the mission festival 24-7 are organising this year, called ‘Transmission’. Its getting to that exciting and scary stage – exciting in anticipation of a fantastic time of God speaking and transforming peoples lives, and scary as we understand the organisation involved in putting together something bigger than 24-7 has ever pulled off before!
I’m finding myself really thankful at the moment. There’s loads of fairly major things going on in my life, but I have a fantastic sense of peace. God is with me in all things. Thanks to those of you who pray for me 🙂
Its that time again! My latest quarterly supporters newsletter can be found here. If you haven’t received a personal copy, and would like to support me in prayer, financially, or in both of these ways, please email me and let me know.
One of the great encouragements to me after a week of 24-7 prayer is to see all of the creative outpourings of prayer all over the walls of the prayer room. A few pictures of some of the prayers after our last week of 24-7, and some of the paintings and murals by our ‘resident artist’ Josh Jackson, can be seen by clicking on this link.
We gathered on Saturday evening at Cav Baptist rather tired from a frantic couple of weeks trying to get the new Reading Boiler Room fit for people to come and pray in. Through the tiredness though, there was a distinct sense of expectation. We were relaunching, celebrating the new place God had given us to be, and expectant that he was going to speak.
It’s been a while since I’ve been writing this kind of thing through the achy eyes of a 24-7 Prayer rota duty manager. There really isn’t anything quite like a week of 24-7 Prayer to exhaust and electrify all at the same time! The new Reading Boiler Room has been open almost a week now, and the walls are crying out with praises and petitions to Jesus. Pieces on identity, God’s faithfulness, and heart felt cries for friends, families, and whole towns, where we desperately need to see Him move in power.
There’s not much left of our week of prayer now, and we’ve got the fatigue and elation to show for it! If you’d like to join us, the rota will run until 21:00 Saturday evening, and you can check out the remaining available slots here.
Lord, continue to reveal yourself to your people…
