The February Prayer Day

Firstly, a big thank you to all who helped set it up, take it down, and generally support the day. It was well attended and very much appreciated by all our visitors. People used the opportunity in all sorts of ways to spend time with God, listen for his guidance, and possibly pray for things they might not have thought of before. There was space and time to think about letting go of hurts and worries by dropping a stone into water at the foot of the big wooden cross. Others wrote the names of loved ones who need help and pinned them to the cross. Some attached prayers to newspaper articles, coloured inspirational bookmarks to give to friends, or prayed in the ‘revival corner’ which was a favourite with many, as they reminded themselves what had happened through John Wesley and in the Hebridean and Welsh revivals.

All of the written prayers were also placed in an envelope and brought to the Lord at communion on Sunday.
