Hymn 3 – As the Deer

Intercessory prayer was led by Geoff Sole and included:
*
We do long to come here to worship and pray to you, and learn more about you. We thank you that we can live in this green and pleasant land and enjoy your creation. We know that Jesus is our bread as we learnt last week. We thank you for our own families and our church family.
*
Most of us here will have more than one Bible. Many people around the world don’t have one or don’t have one in their own language. We ask you to bless all those who translate the Bible.
*
Many people worldwide live in spiritual darkness, please bring them into your light. Please protect the persecuted Christians. We pray for all those involved in the bombing in Baghdad, and the shootings in Dallas. Please help those injured and those who grieve.
*
Please bless the plans to hold a Youth Camp in our Kenyan Refugee camp. Help also John Biswas and Roger Lipross with their work in Bangladesh.
*
We thank you for the improvement for Val Quinn, and ask you to help Val Cann. Camilla in Brazil needs you to heal her of cancer. We ask your continued help for Margaret and Rod Channon and Graham and Maggie Mitchell.
*
Please support and guide Jackie Mill as she takes over S.E.P. and  bless the plans for Adventure Camp.
*
We thank you for the table outside and the help it has given to people through you.

Hymn 4 – I Then Shall Live.
Hymn 5 – My Shepherd will Supply my Need

Irene Wilson brings Intercessory PrayerThe Message was given by Irene Wilson about walls.
Can you name a business which is really booming today? It is those that are building walls, fences, security gates and electronic barriers. People now feel insecure and build walls to enclose themselves, maybe to avoid neighbours. Some people we just can’t even like, let alone love. What does God think? James 2:8 tells us to love our neighbour. There are also walls of class, race, gender, povity or religion. Hate, pride and anger hold the walls together. The world is full of walls and borders. What about a barrier between us and God? How can we as Christians storm these walls? Are we like the Laodiceans? Revelation 3:15-21. Pride leads to sin. Proverbs 18:11. Ephesians 2:13-14. When Joshua and the people marched around Jericho, the ark of the covenant was in the middle of them. Joshua 6:7-9. God’s presence was with them. God does not now live in a temple built by man. At the very moment that Jesus died, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
Matthew 27:50-51. Humanity was reconciled with God. We must be aware of all blockades in our lives, and let Jesus remove them. Psalm 18:29. With his help and by his grace, we have a destiny of glory with no walls.
