'The Sanctuary' News
The following news is from Liz and Jill - the Sanctuary’s Vision-keepers.
1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty; continuing violence in Syria; the Eurozone in crisis; people in the UK facing recession and redundancy; conflict in Afghanistan, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories... Huge situations require big prayers fuelled by great faith and a hope that is robust enough to pray again and again.
We’ve recently been struck by a new understanding of Jesus’ famous words in Matthew 7 and Luke 11 - ask (and keep on asking); seek (and keep on seeking); knock (and keep on knocking).
You can read our thoughts on this in the new blog article we posted today ask and keep on asking .
We’ve also published a new resource inspired by it - a creedal prayer committing to continuous prayer , which is based on a new song of Liz’s that we’ll shortly be recording and making available. You can download the prayer from our new and topical resources page and use it to voice your commitment to keep seeking transformation for some of these huge situations that God has laid on all of our hearts.
After last week, when we took part in Live below the line (an initiative where you have £1 a day for all your food and drink for five days), we’re newly committed to praying for the 1.4 billion people living below the poverty line. You can read more about this in our series of blogs from last week, which we’ve collated into a single document together with the prayers they inspired. The living below the line diaries are also available on our new and topical resources page .
We hope that, like us, they will inspire you to keep asking God for change, and keep committing to being part of the answer to that prayer
