Prayer

Your Kingdom come ~ Your will be done

On Earth as it is in Heaven.

LEAF are committed to pray for the spiritual transformation of the New Forest; for the church and her leaders, and for the communities in which we live. To that end we also pray for the people of the forest, and all issues affecting them. We pray that they will come to know that God loves them and that they will experience His transforming power in their lives, through Jesus.

Prayer works

When the disciples came to Jesus and asked Him “Lord, teach us to pray” he told them: “This, then, is how you should pray”: 

“Our Father in heaven hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one,
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever.

Amen.”
                                                                                    Matthew 6:9-13

By answering in this way, Jesus showed how we can each one have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Prayer is God’s idea, not ours. 

Jesus said: “when you pray...”, not if. (Matthew 6:5-8)  It’s not something we’ve invented out of our own need. It’s part of Gods plan for our lives, and He wants to hear our prayers.   

The Apostle Paul said: “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone...” (1 Timothy 2:1) Paul also said “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests ..., be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints...”. (Ephesians 6:18)

Prayer is central to all we do within the Local Evangelical Alliance. Prayer precedes all of our management committee meetings, gatherings and events. Plus there is a regular monthly Leaders Prayer Breakfast with light breakfast - open to all church leaders - where leaders can pray for each other and for His Kingdom to come throughout the New Forest… and beyond. These prayer times are on the 1st Thursday of each month and are in differing locations. 

Please see the online calendar for further LEAF Leaders Prayer Breakfast details.
