These are clearly challenging days – unprecedented times of national and global emergency. In the midst of these circumstances, our need for God has never been greater. We echo the prayer with the Psalmist, ‘My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God,’ - Psalm 84:2. And so we pray: together, remotely, boldly and persistently, trusting that God will hear our prayers and answer. ‘The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles,’ - Psalm 34:17.
We warmly invite you to get involved with these new prayer opportunities.
24/7 Prayer Room (online)
We have launched our 24/7 Prayer Room centered on the theme of the Father's Heart. Everyone – no matter where you are - can get involved. You can sign up for an hour (or longer) on your own, with your family, prayer partner or with your Group.
To support this, we have created a private 24/7 Prayer Room Facebook page with the aim to:
- Help you speak and listen to God creatively - We will be sharing a wide range of prayer resources to guide your praying.
- Build an interactive community - A space to share your reflections and responses to your prayer time with the church family.
Prayer Group - Wednesdays 8.30-9am
Join a group, led by Tom Holbird or Jon Harley. This group meets weekly to pray together online for the life of St Matthias and our wider family of churches in the city.
Register interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email you the link to zoom.
These are challenging times but God is our ever-present help in times of trouble. Whatever you are experiencing and dealing with, we would love to pray with you. Email your prayer requests to email@example.com
