Thanksgiving

At The Ark there is a strong emphasis on prayer, supplication and thanksgiving.  Prayers are shared among the congregation all through the week

As God answers our prayers thanks are given to God and are shared among us all as a sign of encouragement to all. This is in line with The Ark’s vision of ‘building one another up’

Here are just some of the thanks that have been shared in the past 4 weeks to encourage us all:

 

Thanksgiving to God for this day; and that,at long last, we can start meeting up – gathering together- again. ❤  Angela

Josh (Son in law who came to Jesus) asked for prayer: he’s leading a friend to the Lord, needed a prayer for him. Wow amazing 👏👏👏🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉  Linda

Thank you Jesus for you use us to speak for you. Thank you Holy Spirit for you are the one to draw all men the Jesus. Thank you that you will give Josh the right words.  Norman

Thank you Jesus for Josh and his ‘new Christian, bubbling love for you’, love that has spilled to overflowing.  Carole

Thank You so much Jesus for rivers of living water 💜✝️  Berni

Our Euro cash card was fully loaded ready for Spain but had been frozen. Our cash is safe apparently, but we just couldn’t get at it, which was a problem. O thank You so much, Lord Jesus. To all who prayed, and all those who didn’t, (about our frozen finances), we have a great, great God, who answers the cries of His children.  Roger

🎶 Thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus, thank you Lord for loving me, thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus, thank you Lord for loving me🎶  Carole

Thank you father for your faithfulness to our family. Thank you father for our daughter Amanda, who’s still has her job , and starts back to work on Monday, and can work from home . Hallelujah 👏👏👏  Linda

Thank you Lord for Amanda’s work. We thank you also for your provision for so many at this time. Your arm is never too short. Praise You. Amen.  Anne T

Thank you Lord that our security is found in You. Praise your name.  Anne T

Hi everybody thanks for all your prayer. An update I was able to work in my sister’s garden yesterday and even I was surprised being able to do that. God is good. Bless you all.  Annette

Thanksgiving for Alastair:  It is noticeable that the twice we have prayed fervently for his needs, he has improved rapidly, and in between, he was struggling. This WhatsApp is a really dynamic channel of God’s grace and mercy, Alleluia!  Roger

Amen, thank you Jesus for your wonderful love and healing for Alastair.  Norman

I want to Thanks God as well as Bridget, Mike, Joseph and the Maylors. 🙏🏼
I had a terrible pain in my wrist and I was wearing a splint, they prayed for me yesterday and my wrist is well! 😃🙏🏼 No more pain at all!
Thank you, Lord!  Yasmin

Hallelujah. Thank You Jesus.  Edith

Our God is Powerful. Thank you Jesus for Yasmin.  Carole H

Thank you Jesus that Yasmin is even more precious to You than she is to us! 🙏🏻😍  Pam

Thank you Jesus that you will reveal the problems to the doctors that are plaguing Annette and the wisdom for the treatments. Thank you Jesus that you provide the medicines and doctors.  Norman

Thank You, Lord for Your gift of Faith. ❤  Angela

I praise Your holy Name, this Sabbath evening. Thank You dear Lord, that “in You all things hold together”. Inspire Your Church to bring Your comfort and hope to the lost all around us. Fill us with Your Love and courage to proclaim Your message of salvation. We just want to do Your will, every day, and bring Glory to You, Lord.  Roger

I was praying just this morning – that I am so in awe that My Lord loved me all the way through from the beginning – unconditionally.  Thank You Lord 🙏 Ali

I thank you Lord that though it may be becoming dry and brown here, Your pastures remain green and full of Your nourishment 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽  Graham & Linda

Update on my friend Heather…and her dog! “The hospital phoned yesterday and said that I can go for walks in the woods with Candy! After 8 weeks! Wooo woooo!” Thank you Lord for prayers answered 🙏🏻  Pam

I am so grateful that my Father God sheltered me under his wing this weekend (6-7 June) when there was a power surge that set some neighbours’ TVs on fire… It was very frightening with the lights flashing and fizzing, and strange bangs and noises from the lift etc, but He kept me safe, and although I have 3 things damaged (internet router, now repaired at a cost of 60 euros, air conditioning and mobile charger), there was no fire and no one was harmed. Hallelujah! Pam

Thank you Jesus for keeping Pam safe and thank you Jesus that you are Pam’s provider.  Norman

Thanks to God for His protection. ❤  Angela

Thank you Lord. Jilli has just told me her arm has not hurt today.. She dare not say anything all day just in case but she just could not keep it in any longer.. I said that there are loads of people praying for her and she welled up with emotion.. Halleluya praise my beautiful Lord!!! I love him!!!  Mia

Re: Alastair, following a heart attack and subequent suspected infection:
Praise the Lord! Infection results negative. However, his adrenaline levels are extremely high so they are trying to adjust them to stabilise his heart.
Waiting on news about transfer and op date. Praying. Thanks everyone for standing with us x  Carol via Roger

Amazing! Alastair is HOME! PTL! He’s a bit sore but glad to be home. Now he must be disciplined and take the recommended daily walks to build up his strength again. What a great God!! Alleluia!  Roger

Thank you Jesus…again.  Pastor Andrew
