Attention shoppers," sang the stores speaker system cutting through the cheesy Christmas tune, “we have a lost season, he could have been left behind some time ago and answers to the name Advent. Would the carers of Advent please leave their shopping and make their way to the nearest exit where the season is desperate to be found?” The announcement went unheard amidst the Christmas crush, both by bargain hunters who clawed items from the shelves, their painted smiles lit by the fake trees and flickering fairylights, and the seasonal employees whose senses had been dulled by the stress of over demanding customers and a Christmas soundtrack featuring traditional 70’s rock on heavy rotation.

Welcome to one of the most wonderful and challenging times of year; a season of active waiting and preparation before Christmas which begins with ‘Stir Up Sunday’ this Sunday, 21st, (I’ll explain the name in a bit), followed by Thanksgiving in America on Thursday 25th and Advent Sunday throughout the Western church on the 28th November. The season of Advent is an invitation, an opportunity for spiritual intentionality, reflection and prayer in which you may like to renew disciplines such as daily bible study, physical exercise, journaling, reading a Christian book, running a season of 24-7 prayer, or arranging a ‘how am I doing?’ chat with a friend.

I’d like to take a moment to share my heart with you about a particular trafficking issue that has been a growing passion of mine over the last three years.
The pain of the past week is just too severe to mention in full. There are only some things I can share, but please know there are certain things that are too painful, difficult and delicate for me to write about here.
God is not the same as he was when I was a kid. He couldn’t possibly be.
I recently heard a preacher say this: ‘If it’s possible, it’s not God’. He was talking about miracles and we all like miracles.
No matter how soothing an alarm sound I choose, when my phone goes off at 6.30am it’s a rude awakening.
Last weekend over 400 people from 22 countries gathered in Scotland for 24-7 Prayer's international gathering Magnify. Edinburgh is an incredible city and served as an amazing backdrop to an inspiring weekend.
‘Where is 24-7 Prayer going next?’ It’s a question I’m often asked and in Scotland last week we responded by launching our 2020 Vision; a roadmap for the next decade of prayer, mission and justice. We have an amazing opportunity to impact our generation with the gospel and in particular we believe that the Lord is giving us three strategic keys: Prioritizing Prayer – We are blessed with Prayer Rooms all over the world so we’re going to continue to catalyze, connect and resource focused intercession in churches, on campuses and across cities.
