EMBA Prayer Gathering


Dear friends, 

An opportunity to pray. - 6th May 20217.45 pm - 9 pm

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”   Jeremiah 33:3

As our country and thus our churches begin to carefully make their way out of lockdown, we felt that it would be a good opportunity to once again gather and pray together as churches across the Association.

Although we rejoice at the prospect of the loosening of the lockdown rules, we know that the days ahead are not likely to be easy. There are many uncertainties, many challenges and many questions that our churches will have to resolve as they seek to move forward. For many in our congregations the prospect of being able to gather again in the church building, to worship, to sing and to share followship in person is wonderfully exciting. However, we must also recognise that for others this is a prospect that makes them fearful and anxious.

As an EMBA team we feel that this is the right time to call the churches together to pray. To do as Jeremiah tells us, call out to God believing and trusting that he will answer us, believing and trusting that he will give us wisdom and help as we prepare and plan for the days ahead.

Here’s what to expect:-

  • Welcome and brief devotion
  • Break into groups to pray for our churches
  • Short responsive prayer
  • Video worship song
  • Break into groups to pray for our communities and country
  • Short responsive prayer
  • Benediction

The event is open to anyone from our EMBA churches, and we really hope that you will make this hour a priority in your diaries.  Why not come as a leadership team, why not invite your small groups to come along. We would love to see as many of our church family as possible gathering to pray.                              
We look forward to seeing you on 6th May.
