Monthly Prayer Meeting - Monday 1st March

Our monthly prayer meeting takes place on Monday 1st March at 8pm on Zoom.  Please join us if you can as we pray for God's intervention. The link is the same as previous monthly meetings but do get in touch if you need it: stornowayfreechurch@outlook.com

This meeting ties in with the Presbytery's designated hour of prayer.

The Bible passage and prayer points for Monday 1st March 2021 have been chosen by Rev. Ewen Matheson, minister of the Cross congregation.

Bible Passage Isaiah 45:7 (ESV)

I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the LORD, who does all these things.

Prayer Points:

  1. Give thanks that God is sovereign.
  2. Pray that the Lord would grant us the discernment to learn the spiritual lessons from our current providence.
  3. Pray that the Lord would bless those who are unwell, receiving treatments, grieving, struggling with addictions and all who are finding the isolation particularly difficult.
  4. Give thanks for, and pray for the safety of, health care workers, care givers, key workers, and emergency services personnel.

In normal times, we would have been celebrating the Lord's Supper in February. Rev Kenneth I Macleod reflects on the Lord's Supper and what happens when we partake.

“And when He had given thanks, he broke it (the bread) and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also He took the cup, after supper, saying “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:24-26

As a congregation we should have been celebrating the Lord’s Supper on Sunday. The Lord’s Supper is one of the great blessings the church has been given. There have been times when the church has been guilty of making too much of the supper, with the result that people who love the Lord Jesus, and should be at the table, are afraid to come. The bar has been set so high that they feel they will be sinning by even considering coming. That of course is so wrong. Other times, parts of the church have been so lax regarding the supper, that it is basically a free for all. Anyone can partake, as long as they come to church. A person’s love for and of the Lord Jesus, where they have accepted Christ as Saviour, is no longer the deciding factor. The church must always guard against either of these extremes.
