“But after I reached Ireland I used to pasture the flock each day and I used to pray many times a day.” (from The Confession of St.Patrick 450AD)
With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching and people here and all over the world preparing how they are going to party, get drunk and scouring their wardrobes for green clothes, we have been thinking about what we will do on March 17th.
We’ll be at the parade in Sligo and the members of the church in Manorhamilton will be passing our flyers at the parade there. But we are once again pointed towards the power of prayer. Patrick himself, with God’s strength, turned Ireland around and so much of his time was spent seeking God for the people here that he loved so much – the people that centuries on, God has placed on our hearts.
We’re going to take the opportunity to spend some time on the 17th praying for this beautiful nation and we’d love for you to join us. Once again we’re going to try and cover the whole 24hours in prayer. If you want to join us and can sign up for an hour or even half an hour on the 17th, please let us know. We’ll send you lots of information and things you can pray for and when the 17th is over, we’ll send out a full update on the Month of Prayer in January and the Patrick’s Day Prayer on the 17th March.
Once again, thank you for standing with us for Ireland. You really have and still do make such a difference!
