Thy Kingdom Come...
Global wave of prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost.
"I cannot remember in my life anything that I've been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the spirit." Archbishop Justin Welby
The services in Ipswich on Ascension Day and Pentecost were a wonderful illustration of Psalm 133 (see our key verses for June). God's people in the town came together in unity and were blessed in doing so. At a time of great challenge for our nation, which we brought to God in prayer, there was hope and joy as we met together. It was a blessing to be in one place, in one accord, under one sound and to be sent out as carriers of God's light and love to a world in need.

Town Pastors Prayer Team: volunteers needed
Congratulations to Ipswich Town Pastors, who began their regular weekend shifts on June 23rd 2006, and have been faithfully patrolling the streets, supported by their wonderful prayer team, ever since. Happy 10th birthday, Ipswich Town Pastors!
As we give thanks to God for his faithfulness, mercy, protection, and many, many answered prayers, let's pray for those currently involved, and remember with thanks, those who have played their part in earlier days.
The Town Pastor Management Team have particularly asked us to pray that God would call more people onto the prayer team, as without sufficient prayer back-up the TPs will not go out onto the streets. Could you be an answer to these prayers? Spending one night a month at the CYM centre, praying and making toast, or praying from home for an hour in the night? Those who make this sacrifice regularly testify that God blesses them for it.
If you would like to know more or join in this amazing work, as a Town Pastor, or prayer team member, contact chair Pete Wood email@example.com or coordinator Barbara Willingham firstname.lastname@example.org
