This week we begin the Journey of Lent, a journey of 40 days through the Wilderness with Jesus Christ towards Easter. We will discover that Wilderness is a much more positive experience than we might imagine and we pray that we will be drawn into a deeper relationship with Jesus.
Let’s Pray For Margaret Robertson (deaconess, Elmwood, Lisburn)
Give thanks that even though we are physically apart we are connected by the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit. Pray for guidance and wisdom for Margaret in conversations with people on the phone, especially with those who are facing difficulties and heartache.
Cahir and Fermoy
Pray that phone calls and text messages will encourage church members. Give thanks that God’s Word is reaching out through social media to some who would not normally attend services.

Evangelical Alliance Leadership Conference (2 hour video)
Normally these conferences are only held in England, but here is the full conference from earlier in the week. I watched this live and there was a lot of good content (plus a few bits you might want to fast forward through.)
In contrast to all the self help books on the market, Jeremy Linneman reviews Andrew Murray’s book “Humility - The beauty of Holiness” and tells us, true happiness, contrary to the dominant message of our day, is not found within ourselves. https://t.co/SmjRNUiWL1
You may remember recently when a competition was held to name a new Artic Research vessel and the internet came up with Boaty McBoatface. The result of the competition was set aside and the vessel was named the Sir David Attenborough. Yesterday the boat was moored in the West Bay Portrush as it carried out sea trials.
