After some singing at the Airdrie meeting this week we had some up to date reports and feedback from some folks. People spoke of various opportunities to speak to others of Christ that had opened to them during the week.
Diana then used the story of the persistent widow to illustrate how we should persist in prayer for souls no matter how long it takes. She encouraged us to really travail daily for the lost. She spoke of not being an inward facing group who thought only of their own needs but to look out across the fields of harvest. We then literally turned our seats round and faced out towards our communities to intercede. This really helped us focus on those we were praying for. Our prayer is that we would learn to continue to pray persistently in this outward way until we see the salvation of souls in our town. Amen.
Leah took a time of singing to begin this week and then we had some up to date reports from people. Mark was speaking this week. We took a break from our bible study on the life of David and Mark spoke from Psalm 84 'How lovely is your dwelling place O Lord of Heaven's armies'. We considered how the Newmains meeting has become a home for many of us to find the presence of God. God has been faithful week after week as we met and we gave Him thanks for this, enjoying a lovely time of worship at the end of the meeting. A word was given at the end very much in keeping with the the speaking that his own presence is able to satisfy to the uttermost all who come to God through His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are looking forward to our outreach next week and pray that God will again bless us as we meet.
