God’s Place – believing in God’s purposes for our communities
This is a new prayer initiative being launched to encourage prayer for local communities.
We start on Tuesday 15th May 2018, 7.15pm at the Parish Church in the centre of Kirkby Stephen, and it will run EVERY WEEK, same time same place.
If you are a Christian living in Kirkby Stephen – any denomination or none – you are very welcome to join us. If you live in the local area around Kirkby Stephen then you too are welcome to join us in praying for the town. We are believing that as God impacts this town it will have an impact on the wider area itself.
Our Scripture is from 1 Chronicles 5:20b, “He [God] answered their prayers, because they trusted in Him.” We are trusting in God for our town, and our community, and the way we do that is by talking to Him about it.
So, why call it God’s Place?
It’s more a declaration than a name. We are declaring that our town, our community, is God’s Place – it’s a desire and a statement we are believing to come about. Every time we speak of our weekly gatherings or print it in our newspapers and magazines, again we are declaring it; “Speak what isn’t as though it is” Romans 4:17
We seek the restoration of His manifest Presence in the Body of Christ.
