Our last post, entitled: A church which is radically Biblical in the power of the Spirit, received some of its inspiration from the highly recommended regular newsletters of, Revd. Tony Higton’s, Network for Revival. The November issue starts a new series of thoughts and asks the question, are we the church prepared for revival?
Tony, as do we, puts an emphasis on the power of prayer and that the potency of prayer depends very much on unity. Tony quotes a key passage of Scripture, the words of Jesus himself about the importance of unity, (or being, ‘as one’), that we at CTNTP have long discerned as fundamental; namely John 17:20-23:
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me”
The national event in the centre of England that CTNTP organised in 2018, was called, ‘As One’. Click here, to read more.
