c3 Church - Jervis Bay | Morning Prayer


Morning Prayer - coming up on 5 Years and Going Strong:some 5 years ago Pastor Susie responded to the prompting of God and began what was the first of a, somewhat small to begin with, early morning prayer meeting at the Church. Each morning at 5:30 am Pastors Steve and Susie spent a hour and more in prayer, joined later by Pastor Trevor, and a sprinkling of others from the body, over time this early morning gathering grew and remained committed to praying for the body, those with need and for God's direction for the Church. Cold and dark winter mornings, wet and rainy mornings, glorious summer mornings; through all seasons the group continued to meet. Sometimes as little as a pair of individuals, at other times as many as two dozen, but regardless of what was happening in the lives of all, someone was always there, praying for the circumstances, Monday through Saturday. Lives have been changed and the miraculous seen through the prayers and the commitment. It is our firm belief that God has and will continue to honour the prayers offered each day, and that the strength of this body is in no small part the result of this commitment to meeting daily with God.

Heb 10:19-25

19 And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven's Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. 20 By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. 21 And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's house, 22 let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.

23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
New Living Translation.
