Friday 12th April

Isaiah 54:2-3 Enlarge your house; build an addition.Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.

Praying for our church to have an impact upon our culture is no small thing! Changing culture may start with one person or one conversation or being an influence for good amongst the people we meet but we are also praying that God would move mightily in our country.

Our culture has changed over the years so that we are moving more and more towards secularism and there are many ways our culture is not healthy. But there are also areas of light and good in amongst the darkness and troubles.

So today we want to pray big, pray that the light we shine as a church would have an impact upon this city and our culture, that we would see growth and addition, that what is ruined or broken would be transformed and we would see life flourishing in this place.

Maybe ask God to place 2 or 3 particular people or areas on your heart and pray for them regularly and see what God does.
