Thanksgiving

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

As God answers our prayers thanks are given to God and are shared amongst 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:-

‘Thanksgiving for God’s healing hand on me as my shaven bones give me very little if any pain so soon after the op. Only pains where stitches are now, so thanks be to God for that.’ Nigel

I want to thank God for my ability to read and that I am so grateful of owning a Bible.  Carole

I want to thank God for sending Yasmin to us from Argentina and for her encouragement to those of us who try to get by without having learned Spanish.  Pam

‘I give praise and thanks to my God for my new grandson.’ Nigel

From Steve in the UK: “Jesus has healed Sue… IT IS DONE !!”

‘I thank God that children are welcome at The Ark and that we have wonderful Sunday school teachers and kids’ spot.’ Jodie

‘Thanking God that Rachel has had the good news today that the cancer hasn’t spread…. Praising Jesus for this good news.’ Edith

‘We prayed for ‘A’ who lost one of her twins early in the pregnancy. I praise the Lord for the life of ‘I’ the surviving baby who was born tonight. She is underweight but healthy, as is her mother. Thank you Lord.’ Howard

‘Wow what a great day at Iceland again. Thank you Lord, for letting us witness to those who don’t know You and to share Your love with others.’ Carole

Update: ‘Thank you so much for your prayers. My daughter Rachel doesn’t need chemotherapy and just a few weeks of radiotherapy. Thank you Jesus for your endless mercy and grace.’   Edith

‘I am in awe of our great God for healing my foot that had been bleeding and ugly on Monday and there is nothing there when the dermatologist saw it on Thursday.’ Roger 

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