Pentecost is the time of year in which The Church celebrates that day two thousand years ago when God’s Spirit burst forth through His people and changed the world. This Penetecost the Archbishops are inspiring us all to pray once more for this transformation in our community.
At the heart of our prayers will be words that Jesus himself taught us – ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.’ It is impossible to overstate the life-transforming power of the Lord’s Prayer. It is a prayer that is reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas. It is famous enough to be spoken each day by billions in hundreds of languages and yet intimate enough to draw us ever closer into friendship with Jesus Christ. It is simple enough to be memorised by small children and yet profound enough to sustain a whole lifetime of prayer. When we pray it with sincerity and with joy, there is no imagining the new ways in which God can use us to his glory.”
You are invited to come to Holy Nativity for the 10am service to pray for the future of our community as we begin a week of prayer. During the week we will be praying for the growth of our community as we seek to serve the people of North Halifax. We will be praying for God’s Spirit to make us a people who actively participate in the work of God to see communities and lives transformed.
