Interesting Fact

British Summer Time – William Willett from Chislehurst campaigned for the clocks to be changed in 1907.  It is thought that the idea came to him after riding his horse in Petts Wood and noticing how many blinds were still down early one summer morning.  A bill was finally passed in 1916 because of the need to save coal.  It was enacted under the Defence of the Realm Act.

Scripture for this Section

“O Lord, you are a great and awesome God” You fulfil your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.  But we have sinned and done wrong.  We have rebelled against you and scorned your commands and regulations.  We have refused to listen to your servants the prophets, who spoke on your authority to our kings and princes and ancestors and to all the people of the land.”  Daniel 9:4-7 (NLT)

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven
Hallowed by thy name
Thy Kingdom come
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
Amen

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

Putting on the armour of God

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.  Put on the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.  Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness.  As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace.  With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  Pray in the Spirit and in every prayer and supplication.  To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.”  Ephesians 6:10-18 (NRSV)

Asking God

"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.  And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.  Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever! Amen.”  Ephesians 3:14-20 (NIV)

“Afterward I will pour out my Spirit on everyone: Your sons and daughters will proclaim my message; your old people will have dreams, and your young people will see visions. At that time I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, both men and women.” Joel 2:28-29 (GNT)

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way.  This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  1 Timothy 2:1-4 (RSV)

“If my people will humble themselves and pray, and search for me, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 7:14 (TLB)

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”  Numbers 6:24-26 (NIV)

Gun and Knife Crime Prayer Watch

Special Lead Prayer time for Gun & Knife Crime on Facebook Live through our Facebook group

In 2018 and 2019 Neighbourhood Prayer Network invited individuals, prayer groups and churches to organise prayer walks along sections of the London Loop.  We had a suggested prayer focus for both years of praying into the gun and knife crime happening on streets across London.   We remain committed to pray about this.   On Friday 19th June between 3pm and 6pm we are going to have a Gun and Knife Crime Prayer Watch between 3pm and 6pm.  This is the most vulnerable time for young people Monday to Friday for gun and knife crime.
