Prayer & Fasting September 2016 | Saturday

Today’s Theme: An issue of justice or need globally or more locally

Well done for making it through the week! I really hope you have felt God speaking to you in new ways as you have pressed in to deeper relationship with and reliance on him.

Thank you for participating so wholeheartedly in this week. To end the week, we will be gathering together this evening in The Clattern, Kingston University at 19:30, for a time of worship and prayer. We look forward to seeing you there.

Much love,


‘A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink’, you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock.” Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.” ‘ John 4:7-15


Who can you show Jesus’ love to this week? Pray for those around you who are marginalised or in need.


In today’s podcast Kate Goddard gives some pointers on recognising and praying for those in need. (There’s also a little plug from Jamie)
