Welcome to the new Ipswich in Prayer website.
Many individuals, groups and churches have been praying collectively under the Ipswich in Prayer (IIP) banner since October 2000. We have seen many prayers answered and great encouragements, as well as challenges.
Some may remember the early days of our corporate story; others will have arrived in Ipswich more recently.
Our first event, an Evening of Prayer, was held in December 2000. We have gathered together many times since, as well as connecting by email, prayer walking, holding prayer schools and weekends of prayer.
We have taken a full part in national weeks of prayer and the Global Day of Prayer, as well as connecting with other prayer networks across England - a special hello today to Sue and the team in Liverpool.
Recently we have felt it right to 'reboot' Ipswich in Prayer, and the launching of this new website is a beginning. We hope everyone will feel that they belong, as we pray together for our town, and wait expectantly before God. Please keep in touch, and send us any words, pictures, prayer requests, events and feedback. Please also visit us regularly here so we can pray corporately, even when not physically gathered in one place.
We will use the blog to share reflections and thoughts from our prayer meetings and from the messages you share with us. We are also on facebook and on twitter.
Thank you for taking time to visit the website and more importantly to pray. We believe in a great and a good God who loves and longs to bless our town. "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
These blogs are written by different people from the IIP team. They are prompted by the things we talk about and pray about when we meet together and by words shared from the praying community in Ipswich.
