Walking the Way

Richard Church asks us to pray…

I think the first prayer should be one of thanksgiving for the widespread welcome for Walking the Way and the inspiration shared by synod advocates in a recent video conference.
Local church and synod initiatives were shared of how God was inspiring creative projects in various parts of the URC family.

We are thankful too that two synods have agreed to work with LICC to form learning hubs and to implement whole life discipleship practices in their congregational life and witness. Please pray for synod teams working on this project in Southern and Northern and wisdom in identifying the ten local churches in each synod which will be piloting the scheme.

We pray for the exploration which the steering group is undertaking into setting up an online missional community within the URC that it may result in an effective way to reach out to those circumstantially excluded from physical church and be a place of welcome for those just beginning their exploration into Christ, the message of the Gospel and its relevance to contemporary life.

Pray too for Andy Braunston and his team of contributors who are preparing Daily Devotions for sustained energy and inspiration from the Word and give thanks for the thousands of people this resource is reaching each day.
