Prayer in the Parish
Today, we live in a time of great change, much uncertainty and in a nation where many do not have a personal faith in God. As Christians, our response to challenge and difficulty, is to come to our Heavenly Father, Almighty God, in prayer, to hold fast to the promises in His word, to listen for His ‘still small voice’, to act when necessary and to allow Him to transform our lives to be more like Him.
There are many opportunities to gather for prayer either as part of a regular service or in a home group.
- Weekly on Fridays at 7.00am to 7.30am in St. Leonard’s Church
- Saturday at 8.30am to 9.00am in St. Leonard’s Church
- Monthly on the 2nd Tuesday from 2.00pm at 10 Walmer Road
- Alternate Thursday morning from 10.00am there is a Julian Prayer meeting at 9 Homefield Road
Together with other Churches in Seaford we host an occasional prayer evening- details are posted on this page.
We have also prepared a Prayer Diary as a resource for prayer, be it in public worship or in private prayer. The diary is by no means exhaustive and the headings are there to provide a ‘spring-board’ for prayer. There are 31 headings, one for each day of the month and a separate section for mission. You can download a copy here.
Thy Kingdom Come
As a part of the “Thy Kingdom Come” season of prayer this year, from Ascension Day to Pentecost (Thursday 30th May to Saturday 8th June) St. Leonard’s Church will be open for prayer. On Saturday 8th June from 2pm there will be a Half day of Prayer followed by Compline which starts at 9.00pm.
The theme is to “Light up the World” and it is suggested that we each pray for 5 friends or family members to come to know the love of God for themselves. We will be offering several resources to focus prayers.
