A few days ago I was sitting in a coffee shop, writing in my journal and enjoying a time of prayer and reflection. I didn’t have my “normal” bible with me, but I have an electronic one in my phone. When I navigated to the bible application and opened it, it opened at this amazing promise of God:
Sunday, 5th December, 7 pm we had our first United Prayer Night for Ireland here in the NAZ. In spite of the wintery weather conditions the turnout was really encouraging, but even more encouraging was the atmosphere of love and unity in the meeting. I had asked all the pastors form the different Christian Churches in Greystones to put some prayer points in writing and introduce the respective sessions from the front, which they did. (Two pastors couldn’t attend due to other commitments). We started the meeting off with some reflective worship songs and focusing on the character of God. Then we took time to pray for the Spiritual Situation of Ireland, Ireland’s Churches and Parachurch-Organizations, Ireland’s Political and Economical Situation, and our local Situation in Greystones. I believe that united prayer is something that gives joy to the heart of God. It certainly was a great encouragement to me.
