Be part of our praying community as we pray "Day by Day with St John".
At St John’s we recognise the truth in the statement that “a church that walks together with God is a church that will thrive and draw others to it”, and so part of our mission and our call is to become a community of prayer.
It can be easy to become discouraged when we pray on our own. There are competing demands on our time, we may not be in the mood, things crop up or we simply forget. We may not even think we have to pray every day. Jesus, though, told us we must persevere with prayer.
When his disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray he replied with “Our Father…”. Christian prayer is always “we” prayer – We are the Body of Christ. When we pray we are never alone and we pray as part of the Body of Christ.
To become a praying community, we are being asked to commit to pray at least the Psalm prayer for the day and the Lord’s prayer (Stage 1), “Day by day with St John”, wherever we may be, so that even if each of us is physically alone, we know that we are always praying with others - with the Body of Christ here in Hurst and indeed with the wider Church of Christ.
By God’s grace may way we walk together as a community of prayer seeking: to stay close to Jesus, to live up to our calling as his friends and so to do his will.
