Matthew 7 v 7 says 'ASK and it will be given to you; SEEK and you will find; KNOCK and the door will be opened to you'.
At City Church Leeds have been putting this verse into practice lots recently, with the Monday evening prayer meetings, prayer in our Life Groups, the prayer team and, last year, 'Flash Prayer' in the city centre and unity prayer with other church families from across the city.
Prayer has undeniably been a key part of the journey and we are excited to continue asking, seeking and knocking.
So we'd like to let you know that in a few weeks' time, on 20th - 21st April, we will be holding 24 hours of prayer at the Ashwood Centre (present home of City Church Leeds).
This will be a full 24 hours of prayer, and will be held on a drop-in basis, so you can come in and out as you want/are able at any time during the 24 hours.
What an amazing opportunity to have a constant, uninterrupted conversation with God!
Please come and take part - drop in for as much or as little as you want, for a few hours or a few minutes - as much as you can commit to during the 24-hour period.
We'll be kicking off at 3.00pm on Saturday 20th April and finishing at 3.00pm on Sunday 21st April.
The time itself will be entirely unstructured - there'll be materials for arty/creative worship, some music & you can come and just BE in God's present, pray and worship individually or in a group, seek God for personal things, for Leeds and for the nations.
If you'd like to come with an instrument & worship God that way, please do! This is just a forum and a space to press into God in whatever way you want, and just to enjoy being in his presence.
Please invite others too - this is not exclusive to CCL, so let people know!
We can't wait to see how God is going to move and speak to us as individuals and as a the Church, and we're looking forward to seeing you all there!
Please contact us with any questions, and please pray ahead of this that it will be a fruitful time of seeking God's will and kingdom.
With love to you all!
