When Christians gather to pray things happen. They are changed and the communities around are changed. This can get negative responses (which probably show we are doing the right thing).
Today this was clear and obvious in Raunds. Within two hours of our latest 24×7 prayer room opening some young vandals (yes we saw them) kicked and smashed our brand new sign advertising the prayer week.
So tonight in the prayer room we are praying for the kids in Raunds who are so frightened of prayer that they want to try to stop it. May the Spirit of the living God break into their lives so that they might learn of the love of the God who created them and who calls them by name.
I will be putting up a temporary poster tonight inviting the vandals to contact me to hear that they are forgiven and point out that they are welcome to come in and discover a welcome and love.
Oh and I'll be ordering replacement parts for the sign.
