Oswald Saunders says: “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is
the greater work.” In short, prayer is a discipline we can all follow: it is hard
work, but by our prayer God can bring transformation to our community.
The second area, I suggest, is that we enjoy Pentecost anew this year.
Too often, as the self-sufficient people we frequently are, (and there is much
to be said for that), we tend to rely too easily on our own abilities to do God’s
work. When we do, we fail. Living the Christian life and building God’s
kingdom is only possible when we recognise that we can do nothing in our
own strength but only by the power of God through the Holy Spirit who lives
in us day by day. May we find the Spirit strengthening and encouraging us,
leading and guiding us, producing spiritual fruit in our lives and giving us all
that we need to face the challenges which each day brings.
I truly believe that as we pray more and walk more closely with the Holy
Spirit we shall be changed and so will this community.
May God bless us all.

       The prayer of a righteous person
       is powerful and effective. James 5:16

                                         PRAYER
       The shortest distance between a problem and a solution

            is the distance between your knees and the floor.
      The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.

                                                                                  2
