Fixing Our Eyes On Jesus

As we live in lockdown again, ‘…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.’ (Heb. 12:1-2)

We’re tired. Schools have closed. The NHS is under pressure. Many are facing unemployment and financial challenge. Most of us staying home as COVID-19 continues to spread across Great Britain.

But we have a hope beyond what we hear on the news. 
A hope for us and for our communities.
Our hope is in Jesus.

Try a new rhythm of personal prayer and pray with hope for your neighbourhood.
