During the 11 days between Ascension and Pentecost it is hoped that we will all be able to deepen our own relationship with Jesus Christ, pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus and pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness.
The disciples gathered devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing. Let us all pray for God’s Kingdom to come.https://gochattercustomvideos.com/view-video.php?id=oSDidUFqCL
Five knot Prayer Bracelet
An easy ways to pray for five people regularly. Take a piece of string or cord, and tie five knots in it to represent each of the five people you have committed to pray for. You could carry the knotted string in your pocket, tie it round your wrist or place it somewhere that you’ll see it regularly. Use the knots to remind you to pray for each person on your list of five.
