As we journey through these days of May 2023….and the global prayer venture of Thy Kingdom Come….
At Liberton Kirk we usually set aside a Tuesday each week and provide a place with space – the UPPER ROOM – a place for time-out in our busy days above the Kirkgate Cafe. This is a safe place for you to be.
The Upper Room will be open once again this Tuesday…with a creative flavour….and you are invited to take time-out with God at some point…7.30am – 7.30pm….and to pause with Him….reflecting…praying….
This is a quiet place…..a safe place for you and God to take time-out together
There will be art work from our children on display……posters and images to ponder…and Meg Milne’s Kingdom artwork……and space for you to creatively pray!
* A space for you to be still in a busy world
** To pause and pray with God at this time – the God of all comfort, wisdom, mercy and hope
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these times
There are opportunities to pause and pray with others at 8am, 12 noon and 7pm….and John and others gathered then will be happy to see you at any of these times…..or you can arrange to pray with the Prayer Team at some point suitable for you….
You are also invited to walk round the Kirk, pondering some of the words laid out at the various stations from the Bible……or to visit the Offering House – beside the gates – 8am-5pm each day – there are several helpful reflections and prayers – and helpful leaflets and booklets about our faith and our Kirk. There is also a Prayer Request Box situated here for you to leave your own personal requests – our Prayer Team will prayerfully support those you name.
Our Prayer Team also invite you to Prayer for Healing – a safe place with a small trained team – each Tuesday in May and June. This will be available in the McDonald Room (near the cafe foyer) 1-2pm and 6.30-7.30pm.
In the evening we gather in the Kirk to pray – Thy Kingdom Come – with others from SE Edinburgh. 7.30-8.30pm
You are also encouraged to use the bench at the top left of the Kirkyard (under the large tree – weather permitting!) to pause and pray – to be still with God – to ask, seek, knock, wait and receive.
The Daily Devotions have been taking us to a daily time of considering God’s Good News with God’s written Word – and you may want to pause to pray with others at the start of each day as we consider the truths behind the words of this part of the Bible. During May our focus will be on Thy Kingdom Come as we continue on the theme of Telling Others the Good News . This is available on the Kirk website blog and our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter from 7am- and in the church magazine.
And – don’t forget the brief Sunday morning Reflection at 8am…….and the Thy Kingdom Come global prayer venture daily reflections on our YouTube channel….from members of our Church Family providing a reflection over the 11 days period. This year the venture runs 18-28 May. Will you be praying for 5??
May we each and all experience time-out with the Living and True God – whenever – wherever – as we journey through the month of May 2023.
