This Week…

Prayer Life

Grant, O Lord, that I may be so ravished in the wonder of your love that I may forget myself and all things; may feel neither prosperity nor adversity; may not fear to suffer all the pain in the world rather than be parted from you. O let me feel you more inwardly, and truly present with me than I am with myself, and make me most circumspect in your presence, my holy Lord.
Amen.

 

From Robert Leighton (1611 – 1684)

 

Please pray together with us this week for:

• Pray for this Sunday’s Worship Service as Pastor Brenda and Pastor Lance kick off our Realationships Series. Pray that everyone would encounter Christ and His presence.

 

• Pray for those that were first time visitors to church this past week. Pray that they would continue to take steps towards Christ and that they might see the Gospel clearly and be able to respond to God’s grace.

 

• Pray for our Alpha Holy Spirit Day this Sunday afternoon. Pray for our leaders that they would be filled with the Spirit as their listen, pray and minister to the participants. Pray that the participants attend the session with open hearts to see and experience God’s love.

【 A Joint Outreach Event: “Serving our Neighbour” 】
Please be praying for the Outreach program that is coming ahead of us on 30 April and 1 May. If you would like to join us please contact Pastor Ebson or Sandra Lee (Admin).

 

God is working amazingly among the young adults at HFA church. On Sunday afternoons young adults will organize sports time, hangout time, and other activities where individuals get to do life together. A person/leader will lead the group into a time of bible reflection or personal sharing during the activity. If you are interested in joining these activities please let us know. It is really refreshing and life changing!
