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. 

Update from my friend, and occasional Arkie, Heather, after being rushed to A&E 3 times while here in Sep/Oct, she’s now fit enough to take her dog walking in Cheshire, England: ” I’m in a very wet and muddy woods with my Candy. The first walk I’ve had since the beginning of September. Feeling great now. Yesterday I went to town and walk at a normal pace without getting out of breath and then came home for a rest! I think something else has clicked into place as yesterday again I felt very much better.” Praise the Lord! 🙏  Pam

Thanking God for all our fellow-believers- the family of Jesus. ❤ Angela

There was a praise and thanksgiving for the good turnout on October 31st at the Lifeboat where the children watched a good film with sharing of food and fellowship

Giving thanks to Chris and David Carlson for sharing their testimony with us on Sunday. They also told of how they were called into full-time ministry. They prayed with the congregation for many sick and there were healings. They also prayed for people to be saved and other to rededicate their lives to Christ on Sunday. We were all blessed by their visit to Spain and hope they will return soon

(Sarah Almagro got a new kidney. Her dad was the donor)  Thank you Lord, you are so amazing. Thank you for the work that you have already performed on Sarah and her dad. Lord I thank you for continued healing, more than the doctors can understand. You’re perfect in every way Lord and we thank you for perfect healing. Ann A

Thank you Lord for my new eye. I can see! Anne T

Amen and thank you Lord that Anne’s eye operation was a success. Jodie

Praise the Lord for His healing of Ethan this week. His fever was very high and he had to go to the hospital after Nigel gave word, that prayer was in need, only a few hours later Ethan’s temperature was normal and he could go home. PTL

Anna shared that when Sofia was playing for her team, she became ill and thought she would not be able to play the next set. Anna asked for prayer and Sofia was out playing the next set. Her team mate asked her how could she get well so quickly? Sofia said ”with prayer God healed me”

The pain in my hip and leg is now gone. Thank the Lord for the healing.  Val

Thank the Lord for healing in my back. The pain totally went during the service on Sunday and I can move my back in ways I haven’t been able to for months.  Jane

Thank the Lord for answered prayer for my granddaughter Noelia whose legs were healed enough for her to return to school.  Bonnie

Lord thank you for a lovely picnic and fellowship and thank you for the brothers who organized the bouncy castle.  I can only take Alex to church if he chooses to go and he almost always chooses to come. Thank you to everyone, especially the Sunday school team. I’m grateful for your efforts and dedication as you serve the little ones and volunteer for our Lord. 🙌 – Jodie

I praise the Lord! I was sent to my health centre in Los Boliches with a 9.27 appointment. Entered at 9.15 doubled over with very painful spasms. Around 9.25 I felt a warmth flow through me and the pain had gone. Stood up and moved around. When called I told the doctor I was a Christian, a group we’re praying for me and the miracle had occured. She offered me an injection all the same which I refused. She gave me some pills to take at night to relax the muscles. I then walked all the way home to Torreblanca buying stuff for a cooked breakfast on the way. I just have residual stiffness and a touch of guilt mixed with a slightly mischievous amusement at not being at work. All praise to Him and my gratitude to you guys for your prayers. Now where’s the HP sauce?? 😁 – Howard

Thank you God for my new job in the global consular services department at the British Consulate in Malaga. 🙌 There’s a whole testimony behind this. Please pray that I will be an ambassador for Jesus in the workplace and can organize my home life well because it’s a full time job, shifts and commuting. Thank you Ark family. 🙏🏻 – Jodie

 

‘Last year (2018) over 90 people we prayed for as a church were healed. Praise the Lord!’
