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 recently to encourage us all.

Thank you Jesus for The Ark Christian School, and that you have overseen the teachers and the pupils over these last 10 years.  That Your name is praised in everything they do.  Please continue to bless both teachers and pupils.  Carole

Praise the Lord that Jim McKechnie is through his operation to amptutate his remaining leg.  Jim has been able to sleep, despite the pain overnight. He has been able to get out of bed with his prosthetic leg and into the wheelchair.  Roger

Thank you Lord for this new day, as we rise, let us give praise and glory to your name.  This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Carole

Thank you Father, that You are fighting for all those in need of You today.  For healing, provision, protection, reassurance and Your peace.  Rita
