For the past 10 weeks, Tom and Sarah Scrivens have been leading a Life Group focussed on prayer, through their church in Ipswich. This week Tom wrote an encouraging Twitter thread about what has been the result. For those of you not on twitter, here's what he said:
One of a few Life Groups @HopeIpswich this term with an emphasis on prayer. Spurgeon said: "Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom" This group itself is an answer to specific prayer. We have constantly and consistently asked God to multiply our group life...— Tom Scrivens (@Tomscrivens1) May 16, 2018
“Nuanced prayers give God an opportunity to reveal more shades of His sovereignty. If our prayers aren’t specific, God gets robbed of the glory he deserves because we second guess whether or not he actually answered them.” Mark Batterson in "The Circle Maker".— Tom Scrivens (@Tomscrivens1) May 16, 2018
How have you seen God answering specific prayers recently? We'd love to hear your stories, and give God the glory he deserves.
