Prayer News October 2022 “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.  His love endures forever.”  [Ps 136:1] The quote above was the heading for last month’s prayer news, and we continue with it again this month as He is indeed good!   In the past 10 years we have had many reasons to celebrate His goodness and His faithfulness, and we have cause to celebrate again, as we have recently received a large private donation towards the costs of renovating the former Manse. As many of you know, the Macmillan family, who founded Macmillan Publishers and from whom came

Prayer News May 2022

Sannox Prayer News – May 2022 “The Lord is faithful to all his promises.”   [Psalm 145:13b] As many of you reading this will know, the Sannox story to date is one of God’s wonderful faithfulness to His promises, and His provision in terms of finances, favour with planning authorities, materials – and especially people – the supporters, the volunteers serving in so many different ways on and off site, and the Sannox staff. Heidi our Administrator and Michelle our Housekeeper have served faithfully for several years, and this time last year we welcomed Jim Farrell to the role of Worship

Sannox Prayer News – April 2022 “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.”   [Psalm 24:1-2] We are in that time of transition, moving from winter to spring (though winter may not be completely finished with us yet!).  There have been some sunny, warm days and spring bulbs are flowering, bringing much welcome colour to gardens, parks and hedgerows.  Trees are budding, early crops are appearing, and lambs are gambolling in the fields – all signs of that

“Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever.”  [Ps 107:1 NIV] Regular readers of these prayer e-letters and attenders at our monthly prayer gatherings will have noticed that we spend part of the time ‘giving thanks’.  Thanksgiving is, or should be, part of our daily prayer times – it is a key part of building intimacy – our vital relationship with God, with Jesus, with the Holy Spirit. Part of the Every Day With Jesus reading for 28th August says this:  “Thanksgiving is the bass note for God’s constant communication with us because the bass plays

A ‘Safe Place’ “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!……..For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.”  [Ps 133 NIV] A key element of the Sannox vision is that it is a ‘safe place’ where all are welcome.  There are no ‘labels’ – as was once said in another Christian context, ‘the labels fall off when we come through the door’.  Whatever our church or theological background, when we are at Sannox we are the ‘family of God’ gathering to pray, worship, fellowship, love, encourage, support and learn from one another.  We focus

THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER “Prayer –  The sinew that moves the muscle of God”  [Summary of Charles Spurgeon quote] “We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.”  [Andrew Murray] There are many, many quotes about the unique importance and power of prayer.  We know that spending time in prayer on our own is a key part of developing a ‘Christ-like’ character within us as disciples of Jesus. However we also know that there is a special

Sannox Prayer News May 2021 “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise, give thanks to him and praise his name.  For the Lord is good and his love endures forever, his faithfulness continues through all generations.”  [Psalm 100:4-5] Being involved in a project like Sannox Christian Centre with the need to raise large amounts of finance to carry out an ambitious building project could be a daunting prospect, if it were not for the fact, the truth, that this is the Lord’s project, not the ‘good idea’ of a few folk.
