Ephesians 3 Prayer

Ephesians 3 Prayer

This is my favourite passage of scripture, so I thought I’d have a little play with it this morning.     We kneel before you, Father We’re named in your love, our whole family in you In heaven and on earth. Out of your glorious riches, too exquisite to behold May you restore us with your power Through your Spirit in our inmost being. May you, Christ Jesus, abide in our deepest hearts Through faith alone. And may we who…

If they won’t I will

There’s a lot going about on Twitter at the moment about the death figures for those claiming ESA in the past five years. It makes for some fairly scary reading.

Tapestry ponderings

Tapestry ponderings

At our Thursday coffee group today we were thinking about waiting for answers to prayers, and waiting for God to act, and what about when God doesn’t, and all that. We looked at the stories of Sarah and Hagar in the bible, thinking about how Sarah must have felt, having been promised for years that she would have a baby who would be the first of many descendants, and yet the promise seemed unfulfilled, and impossible now, having gone through…
