MINISTER'S MESSAGE
 GREETINGS FROM REV IRIS 
 
Dear Living Faith Uniting Church Family and Friends

"Pray without ceasing..." 1 Thessalonians 5:17

It was a delight to partake in our recent 24 Hour Prayer Vigil. There is something that happens in the heavenly realm when we come before our Father in prayer for ourselves and others. God wants us to be wholly dependant on Him for all our needs. It is at His feet where we find our release, salvation and healing. Interestingly, there were a few people who sensed God saying, "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). This certainly reflects the flavour of the Prayer Vigil in that quietness opens a door to experiencing God's presence. 

I would love to hear about your experience during the Prayer Vigil. I have received a request that we hold a Prayer Vigil once a quarter going forward because it is a spiritually moving experience for many. Prayer is the power-switch that gets the Holy Spirit acting to bring all things together for our good. My own experience left me with a strong sense of God's will for us to reach more people for His glorious Kingdom. Will you get on board His vision and plan as it continues to unfold for 2021? 

I want to encourage you to bring along to church anyone this Sunday who is struggling with anxiety. We are going to explore some pertinent ways of overcoming anxiety that we can all implement. If you cannot attend church, be sure to watch and share the online service with others. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has attended our in-person services for the way in which you have shown respect to each other amidst the changes. Thank you for social-distancing, using santiser and masks where appropriate. Above all, I want to thank our Lord Jesus for the ongoing opportunities He gives us to meet together! 

I hope to see you soon. 


Your friend,
Iris
