Day of Prayer
The encouragement from Ephesians 6:18 is to “pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests”, and so at different points in the year we seek to carve out time to commit again to this ancient practice — to seek God for our community, city, nation and the nations.
With that in mind, on Thursday 25th November, we are going to be taking a day as an Oasis community to give ourselves to the practice of prayer.
The day will last from 6am until midnight, and to help us cover the entire day in prayer , there is a sign up sheet available by clicking here — just head over to the form and sign up for one or more 30 minute slots.
There will be a continuous Zoom meeting that anyone is very welcome to join at any point (e.g. if arranging to meet with others to pray in a virtual ‘central’ location), or please do feel free to pray ‘offline’ anywhere and everywhere.
Our building on South Street, Harborne, will also be open from 9am-6pm for anyone wanting a different space to come and pray in. To help you pray during your slot, take a look at this resource on the Lord’s Prayer — with readings, encouragements, frameworks and focuses that might prove helpful. This could also be a day to commit to the Biblical practice of fasting — “going without” something (often food) for a set period of time to stir your hunger for God.
Prayer is so central to who we are as a community, and this is a fantastic opportunity to stand together and press into all that God has for us. As we approach the Day, you might want to listen to the talk to the left — from our ‘Formed in Prayer’ series exploring the Lord’s Prayer — where Mike unpacks in a bit more depth why prayer is so vital for followers of Jesus.
Please do join us and get involved on the 25th — all are welcome! If you have any questions at all, get in touch with the team on firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you.
