Two and a half years ago I attended a roadshow put on by United Christian Broadcasters about setting up a Prayerline ministry from our Church.

People can ‘phone from all parts of the UK to ask for prayer for any situation.

In May, 2012, the Windermere satellite group went live and since then we have the privilege of praying for hundreds of people, Christians and non-Christians, for four hours a week.

For the people from church who volunteer, it has revolutionised their prayer lives.

When the ‘phone rings we never know what we are going to be asked to pray for. There are people in great need but there are also people who just want someone to join them in thanking and praising the Lord.

From the moment we pick up the ‘phone we are completely dependant on the Lord for His wisdom and knowledge of the situation of the caller.

We listen to His still small voice and He is faithful in showing us how we should pray.

Often we get a scripture that is relevant to that person for that moment and we are confident that the Lord’s word will not return to Him void.

This is indeed a spiritual lifeline for many people and we are so privileged to be a small part of what the Lord is doing.

I would encourage you that if you are in need of prayer, then take the opportunity of UCB Prayerline on 0845-456-7729.
