Call to prayer

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” (1 John 5:14)

:-) We start by giving thanks that One Life One Passion 2009 reached, and even surpassed, all hopes, prayers and expectations!  We thank God that around 800 people turned out and followed the Passion Play around the town.

 We pray that many were blessed by what they witnessed in 2009, and that many more will be wowed in 2014 by the story of Easter and of God’s love for all his people.

 Our “official” Prayer for One Life…One Passion below is based on that used for the Hornchurch Passion Play.  Please do pray it with us and for us.

Lord Jesus, this is your story we are telling.
Your Passion.
All our efforts are as nothing
Unless we remain true to the spirit of your story:
Your Spirit.
The Holy Spirit.

So come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts, our minds, our words, our actions.
Breathe your life and your truth into us.
Enable us to tell your story in your way, Lord Jesus,
Master Storyteller.

And why, Lord?
Why are we telling your story in the centre of our town?
It is, above all, for those who do not know you,
That they may see, and hear and know that you, Lord Jesus Christ, are God’s Son, sent into the world by the Father, who loves everyone of us,
Even as he loves you.

Such love, Lord, demands to be told
And we shall tell it.

Amen
