We"re holding nine days of prayer for Horsted Keynes and St Giles early next month
in the run up to Harvest Festival.
Our Prayer Novena will be modelled on the nine days of prayer invited by Christ on
Ascension Day in the run up to Pentecost in Acts 1:4-14f and there"ll be prayer events
daily at St Giles, our school, the Martindale or with young people on Lewes Road.
You may like to use the two prayers we"ve put in P&P for Horsted Keynes and St Giles
on those nine days at the start of October.
More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of wrote Tennyson.
What "things" do we seek as village and church?
Enrichment of our common life, the raising up of leaders, space so people of all
faiths or none might better engage to build what"s good among us – we might pray
blessing on the forming up of our neighbourhood plan and commit to engage ourselves
with that .
Growth in faith, love and numbers at St Giles so as to further the praise of God
and his saving work among us, that "5 o"clock in the Martindale" will further connect
with villagers, and, more prosaically - the provision of toilet facilities at Church!
Ask and it will be given to you, search and you will find, knock and the door will
be opened for you. Luke 11:9
