Lovefast prayer and action campaign from the Mahabba Network

Lovefast 7: Home

By Ted from Mahabba's Network Team
Inspired by today's entry in 30 Days of Prayer, but with a UK twist!

 

Daily verse

And they sang a new song, saying:
‘You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased for God
persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
— Revelation 5:9 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
 

Thought for the day

Home

Last year I found myself in a traffic jam in London.

In front of me was a van offering door to door deliveries, London to Accra, Ghana. Africa is connected with the UK as never before.

In the 30 Day booklet we read of some African Muslims who have never met a Christian.

Have any of us never met an African Christian?

The fire of African Christianity is burning in the UK and many of our readers are African.

I recently met  three Nigerian pastors working in the UK . “How,” they were asking each other “Do we help our people win their neighbours? They have faith, and zeal but they mainly win their own.”

They are often living side by side with Muslims. The attraction of a home-from-home-type church is great and leaders wrestle with the challenge of  unreached neighbours all around them.

People like these three African pastors have a real role in restoring faith in Britain.

 

Prayer for the day

Lord, bless the many diaspora churches in the UK and make them ever more fruitful.
