Here's my question about seeking guidance from God...
Proverbs 3:6 says "Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take" NLT
if this is true then how come there have been heaps of times in my life when I have prayed, gotten wise council, read etc in order to make a good decision and still ended up in a total mess?
Please feel free to answer this question or add your own questions

I heard a really inspiring story the other day about a man who prayed for Kenya for 40 days. He was sceptical about what it might achieve. However before that 40 days was over he had:
Not bad aye!
Not surprisingly, I have been feeling really called to pray for our church, the entire thing, young and old. We have some really awesome things happening, and we also have some things that are not working well.
So I’m going to pray for our church for about 20 minutes every day for the next 40 days and I’m also going to fast from my favourite food … and I think we all know what that is… for the next 40 days too.
I’m also going to pray for our church for about 30 minutes every Saturday at church from 9am-9:30am during this time.
If you feel like you might want to join me in my 40 days prayer/fast ( you could choose what you wanted to fast from , favourite food, TV etc) and maybe even join me at church on the Saturdays then that would be cool.
Here’s the Promise I’m standing on
I will build my church and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.
So here’s my prayer
Lord, build Your church,
let our church be a blessing to all who encoounter it
Feel free to add your prayers

Lord thank you that we don't have to do a thing to be loved by You. Without us moving a muscle you already dote on us and consider us to be Your precious kids.
Lord please help everyone of us at HPC to know Your love inside and out and to live lives that ooze out the love you have for us to others as well.
Thank you Lord that we do have what it takes! Because You promise to give us all we need (John 14:14)

Hi everyone welcome to our prayer blog!
My encouragement to you all is to add your prayers to this blog, although we can't always be together as a faith community we can in a sense pray without ceasing as Paul says (1 Thessalonians 5:17) as a community.
If you don't want be part of this ongoing blog you can easily unsubscribe.
My simple prayer for the year ahead:
1. Lord please help us to continue to become an authentic, dangerous and radical community where people are welcomed and cared for.
2. Lord please anoint our church community to be a place where Your power and presence works strongly. Come Holy Spirit, come.
Please join with me in prayer by replying (the Add Comment link below)
