I hope that this email is useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people (Colossians 1:3-4, NIV)
We’re starting a new series this Sunday, working our way through St Paul’s letter to the Colossians. It’s a letter that begins with thankfulness for the Colossian Christians, and prayer that they would continue to live in Christ. It’s also a letter to us, that we would continue to live in Christ and give thanks to God.
