Springboard into 2012 with LRBC’s Week of Prayer

LRBC Week of Prayer 1st Jan to 7th Jan 2012 PosterThe main purpose of the week is to allow God to speak to us as His people. We recognize that what matters is not what we do for God but what God is able to do in and through us.

Please spend some time every day, with us as we meet or, if you are unable to join us, quietly alone, reflecting on our verse for this week:

‘Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labour in vain.’
PSALM 127 v 1
