December is here and it seems like Christmas has suddenly arrived. Children are receiving and opening Advent Calendars. There is the excitement of opening that little door each day and finding a treat hidden behind it.
From 1st - 25th December we are publishing an Advent Prayer Calendar on our facebook page. Each day a ministry, need or prayer request will be shared. If you are on facebook we would encourage you to like and share our page and most of all, use the daily advent posts to remind you to pray for the needs which are shared. When it pops up on your newsfeed, can you take even just a minute, there and then, to pray for whatever is brought before you on that screen?
