Dear Minster and friends,
“Tell them about the dream, Martin; Tell them about the dream.”
These were the words of the great African American Gospel singer, Mahalia Jackson, that prompted Martin Luther King to move into sharing ‘I have a dream’ in a sermon that has come to define a vision for a nation with racial harmony and civil rights for all.
Today, as I write, this country is going to the Polls for an election. Regardless of the eventual outcome, there seems to be little space for dreaming today.
My hope and prayer today, as we seek God together in prayer, is that we would emulate Daniel and his friends who decided to pray for a breakthrough when they felt they were in a crisis.
Perhaps you feel stretched out about the state of the nation and Brexit; perhaps it is a situation at home or at work; perhaps your personal life or emotional health is a concern.
Why not gather friends and pray?
As a church we will be having a day of prayer and fasting on 12th June and I would love to ask you all to join with me in pressing in for a breakthrough. In Daniel 2 – even death seemed at the door, but God answered their prayers by revealing mysteries.
With much love,
