Lockdown 2.0    Week of Prayer for Reading
9-13 November 2020

Lockdown 2.0 is upon us. Just in the last few days we have sensed God calling us particularly at this time to come before Him to seek His face for our town and our region.

God wants to transform his church and our town, and He paints on a much bigger canvas than we can sense or imagine. We want to set aside time to ask Him what He is saying to us at this time, to lift a ‘Jesus Banner’ high on the rooftops through worship and praise, and to bring before Him the things He reveals to us, through declaration and intercession. Lockdown feels like winter, but we believe that God is calling His people to “Arise and Shine” (Isaiah 60).

We believe that many other Christians and fellowships will be sensing this call to pray. Our hope is that this week of prayer will be part of a concerted prayer focus for our town at this time. It would be lovely to join our prayers as one body across our town, and we welcome all who would like to join with us, and bless all those who will be praying either on their own or with their fellowship.

Throughout the week we will be offering times to pray and worship, culminating in a day of prayer on Friday to coincide with the national day of prayer called by the Evangelical Alliance.
