We start our week of prayer and fasting on Monday 7th September. There are still some prayer diaries available at Church. If you have not had one please don’t forget to pick it up on Sunday so that you can join with us in your personal or family prayer times to pray for Bethany, our local area and national/international concerns.  

On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday we will be meeting in the church office from 8:00pm to about 9:30pm to focus in on specific areas for prayer. Numbers of people over the week will be sharing what they are involved with so that we can pray more intelligently for them. 

On Thursday evening we will not be meeting at the office, but meeting outside Sainsbury’s on the High Street at 8:00pm. Two groups will go in opposite directions around the town, meeting back at Sainsbury’s at the end. Stuart has organised this evening and has selected specific prayer stops along the route. The prayer walk will last approximately 45 minutes. 

Friday evening will see us back in the church office for an evening of praise and worship with Paul and the band. This will be interspersed with testimonies and feedback from our prayer times throughout the week. We are expecting God to speak to us and work in the various areas we have prayed for. So this will be the opportunity to share what God has said and done throughout the week. We will break our fast around 9:00pm and enjoy some fellowship together over Pizza and chicken. 

How and if you fast is up to you, and just because you may not be fasting on Friday does not prevent you from sharing the Pizza or Chicken. 

We would really love to have the office packed on the Friday evening so if you can come please plan to, Can we also encourage you to plan to come to a least one other of the evening prayer times during the week. 

If you definitely know you will be coming on the Friday evening can you email me or let me know on Sunday as this will help to plan for the Pizza and Chicken.
