HOW TO PRAY - LENT STUDIES BEGIN - TOMORROW IN FITZROY

Greig How?

Tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy we will be starting Lenten studies in prayer. The congregation will get a little booklet laying out the studies. In that I have written: -

Fitzers

The last few months have seen an intensity in prayer around Fitzroy like no other time in my decade as minister. 

It made me think that Lent might be a time for us to focus a little more on how to pray.

I was then drawn to Pete Greig’s new book How To Pray. My friend Alain Emerson helped Pete by putting together a Tool Shed of 30 Prayer Tools, included in the book. There is also a website where you can hear Pete talking about prayer - www.prayercourse.org

So, during Lent I will be preaching with the help of the book and website resources. Some of our evenings will also focus on Prayer and Roz Stirling will be doing some of those. We are also delighted to have Alain Emerson as a guest speaker on March 15th when our young people will lead us in worship at our Regular Passion worship event. The youth will also set up a prayer room for us all to use.

I come vulnerably as someone who has never really felt like a good pray-er! Let us ask Jesus, as the disciples did, to teach us to pray. 

I invite you to journey with us.

In the morning I will be looking at making a space to pray, finding a place to pray and maybe even how God's common grace causes every single person to pray... Sam Smith agrees... and David Grohl does it too... 

 

In the evening (7pm) Roz Stirling will continue the series, helping us to discern the divine whisper.
