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:

Thank you Jesus that we were all able to meet again in our church this morning, such a privilege, when we think of our Christian brothers and sisters facing persecution for your sake in many countries of Africa and Asia.  Pam

I praise you Lord for our salvation, given so freely to us. The cost, you paid it all, thank you wonderful, life-giving Lord. Amen.  Ann A

Thank you Lord for saving me, and for continuing to so as I walk with you. Amen 🙏  Anne T

Report from big Nige aka Nigel Baldwin. Tests reveal blood vessel to brain is trapped by damaged vertebra in his neck, giving rise to momentary black outs.  Whilst the NHS are thinking about how to treat this, Nigel is very positive about Jesus putting it right.  So let’s stand with him in prayer for complete healing.  Roger

Thank you Jesus that You love Nigel and that he loves You. Keep him under Your protection and please heal him. 🙏🏻  Pam

Thank you Jesus for you are Nigel’s healer, that You said, I am the Lord that healeth thee and by My stripes we were healed. I claim that healing for Nigel in Jesus name. Thank you Jesus.  Norman

I want to thank the Lord God almighty for saving the Adintre van, Joyce’s car and possibly our home from fire this evening. Two rubbish containers right outside the house caught fire exactly when I was out in the van which is normally parked within one metre of the rubbish. It could have exploded. Also, a badly parked car prevented me from unloading the van at Adintre which meant I was home earlier than usual to be with Joyce. Praise the Lord ❤️  Howard

Thank You Lord for protecting Howard & Joyce 💜✝️  Berni

Thank you Jesus for your perfect timing ⏱ 🙏  Anne T

Thank you Lord for your protection and that Howard could recognise your divine intervention in this. 🙏🏻  Jodie

We proclaim No sickness, No continuing poverty, No fear by the Name of the Lord Jesus.  Carol R

Thank you for your prayers. I had shalom peace❤️I’m allowed to see Alex now to be with him when he wakes up.  So pleased this test is finally done (some of you know the difficulties we’ve had in the past). The staff were very friendly which helped a lot and Alex was brave with the Lord’s strength. Our appointment to see the specialist isn’t until mid May but please pray for a positive outcome and for healing. Specifically can you please pray that his left foot which is significantly smaller will grow so he’s not over compensating on his foot that has the malformation? Thank you so much. Your prayers meant so so much to me and God was with us giving us peace 🙌🏻 Jodie

Thank you Jesus for being with Jodie and Alex today. Lord nothing is impossible for you, so we speak to Alex’s feet and command them to come into line with the word of God. Alex, you were fearfully and wonderfully made in your mothers womb. I speak perfection over you, right now in the wonderful name of Jesus. Amen.  Ann A

I don’t get many pictures but I just had one of white blood cells swarming to overwhelm an infection. This is just like our prayers swarming up to overwhelm the enemy’s efforts to harm the Body. Alleluia Lord, thank You Lord for answering our prayers.  Roger

Songs I have listened to recently have the words ‘The Lord never fails, and He won’t start now’. Thank You Lord the the battle has already been won and that You won’t give us anything that we can’t cope with. Our Prayers are never lost and are always listened too. Thank You Lord that we never receive a busy tone and that You are working on them even before we have finished. Amen  Carole H
