18th – 25th Sept.

A Week of Prayer for the Church and Nation.

In the face of our national situation we have decided to call the whole Maranatha community to a Week of Prayer. We are urging all Maranatha Groups and Prayer Cells to gather during this week and also urge individual members to arrange times of prayer to which friends and church members may be invited.

God’s Word makes it clear that the future of a nation can be changed by the humble prayer of God’s people in that land. We, as the people of God in the United Kingdom, have the opportunity and the power to make a difference to the future of our nation. Therefore, let us, as little brothers and sisters of Jesus, take God at His Word and  humble ourselves and pray and seek His face in repentance for the sake of our children and all the future generations of this land.

During this Week of Prayer there will be evening gatherings 7:30 – 10pm at ‘The Ark’ (26 Ambleside Road, Flixton, Manchester, M41 6PH) each day from 18th-24th September. Each gathering will consist of worship and prayer which will be led by different people each evening. All are welcome.
