Prayer News October 2022

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 August 2022

Prayer News August 2022 “Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.”  [Ps 89:14] There is no doubt that this is a difficult time for the UK (and for many other nations) as we listen to the news each day. Throughout the world we desperately need leaders we can trust and respect, people who will clearly demonstrate that they have honesty and integrity as well as compassion for the ‘widow and the orphan’, peacemakers, people who can lead and make decisions that are righteous and just, in the best interests of society and

Prayer News June 2022

Sannox Prayer News – June “Well done, good and faithful servant”   [Matt 25:21] Last month we wrote about God’s faithfulness, and the faithfulness (and faith!) of all involved in the Sannox project since its beginnings. Having watched on Thursday the excellent Trooping of the Colour, the Mall thronged with thousands of folk and the powerful tribute flypast over Buckingham Palace at the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, I was reminded strongly once again about faith and faithfulness – this time the faith and faithfulness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11. Politicians and Prime Ministers come and go, and

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

Prayer News March 2022

Sannox Prayer News – March 2022 “……let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”   [Heb 12:1b] “Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”   [James 1:4] There are many well-known Scripture references to perseverance and persevering.  It is one of the character traits we are to develop as followers of Christ, who persevered in His challenging calling right to the very end, and was rewarded with His crown, being seated at the right hand of the Father. In our humanity we can become weary and discouraged as pray into

Prayer News February 2022

Sannox prayer news – February 2022 “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”  [Prov 16:3] “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.”  [Prov 16:9] “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”   [Prov 19:21] These familiar verses, and many others, remind us once again that it is God who is in total control of every plan.  If our plans have any hope of succeeding, they need to be His plans. In last month’s prayer letter we quoted another verse referring
