With so much to pray for this is an important, albeit short time for the men in the church to pray together, but also a great way to start the weekend as we enjoy each others company over breakfast. Open to all the men in the church over 16 years old, we meet for prayer for around half an hour from 8:30am and then send out for hot breakfast food. Following cereal, tea and coffee, it’s normal to find the men enjoying a bacon or breakfast roll which we collect from a local butcher, and by around 9:45am we are clearing up the mess we’ve made and heading home by around 10am to enjoy the rest of our weekends.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
– James 5:16-18
