“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. When the Lord directs, He is faithful

April 2021 – Prayer News

‘If you want to walk on water you’ve got to get out of the boat’ is the title of one of John Ortberg’s best known books – all about stepping out in faith and trusting God to meet every need.  It’s not something many in our comfortable western Christianity are very good at doing, but it is something that those involved in the Sannox story so far will be familiar with.  Starting with virtually nothing apart from a vision and a sense of calling from God, around £900,000 worth of land purchase, building renovations, salary and other revenue costs has already

February 2021 – Prayer News

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” [Ps 107:1 & 136:1] Scripture frequently reminds and encourages us to give thanks to the Lord, for a whole host of reasons – not least because He is good, and His love endures forever. We need to hang on to that truth as the finish line to this pandemic seems to come tantalisingly closer, only to recede again into the distance following yet another forecast of the time it will take to get on top of it, even as the roll out of the vaccine gathers pace.

January 2021 Prayer News

Sannox Prayer News – January 2021 The word ‘unprecedented’ has been on everyone’s lips in 2020, and there is no doubt that the year we are leaving behind is one we will remember for a long time – for good reasons as well as for bad. As we transition from 2020 to 2021, we should always remember that the ending of something old is at the same time the beginning of something new.  The cycle, the rhythm, of times and seasons flows on – a reminder, if we needed it, of our creator God’s constancy, faithfulness, grace, mercy, compassion and
