A day of prayer in St Gregory’s Church – Thy Kingdom Come

25 April 2018 No Comment

Friday 18th May 2018 – 9:00am – 8:30pm.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are once again inviting us to pray THY KINGDOM COME in our country and our town, a chance for all people throughout the world to pray for one another during the period leading up to Pentecost.

We are holding our Prayer Day on Friday 18th May. Please come and take part whenever you can.

There will be prayer stations around the church where you may stay and pray for as long as you wish, or you can pray round the Stations in about half an hour. It won’t be frightening; nothing difficult will be demanded of you, just your presence before God.

The Labyrinth will be in the centre of our church, representing a pilgrimage to our own centre and back out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

We are told in the book of Acts that the first Christians “devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” and that “they spent much time together in the temple”.

It was the devotion and the generosity of the first Christians that enabled God to add to their number those who were being saved. It will be the generosity of our response to the opportunity of this prayer day that will enable God to act.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if, through our commitment, our devotion, our generosity in prayer, God was able to make a real difference, not only in Sudbury but throughout the world, or even as he did for the very early church, to add to our number those who are being saved and finding a true faith in him.

The day will end with a service of Compline at 8:30pm.

Please pray for this day as it is an important part of all our journeys through faith.
