This week we continue a new series Finding Jesus! We are going to the Old Testament into the book of Genesis to Find Jesus, as we discover Jesus in places we never noticed before.

Proverbs (5 minute video)
Paul Trip is releasing a series of short videos on the book of Proverbs. Each video is about 5 minutes long and is well worth listening to. I will include the videos on the Blog over the next few weeks.
Its Wednesday and the focus of the Blog is Prayer
Christians in Myanmar are asking “Please don’t forget about us,” as the latest developments in the country’s recent upheaval see the democratic movement say they will revolt against the military government.
The more we see Christ in prayer, the more we see him everywhere we go and in everyone we meet. The whole of life becomes an invitation to worship.

The prayer points for this week.
9 – 15 September
Pray for Ulster University Belfast CU’s photography competition happening during Freshers’ Week, that people would be intrigued by the message of hope shared.
Praise God there is a committee in place for Maynooth CU this year as it was touch and go as to whether they would have the required number of students for a while.
16 – 22 September
Hundreds of thousands of school leavers don’t know Christ: pray that even the uncertainties of Covid would make them question what truly matters most in life and they will connect with a CU and hear the message of hope in the gospel.
Pray that our loving Father would supply financially what we need as CUI for the mission he has called us to. Give thanks for the partnership of so many already in this way.
