Church Get Talking

`Britain Get Talking’ is an ITV Mental Wellness campaign to help families get closer. Anxiety and depression in children have apparently risen by 48% since 2004. but talking and listening can build mental wellness, so hence the encouragement to tune back in to the story in our own living room. These next two months, as you can see from articles elsewhere, we are focusing on prayer so with the above initiative in mind that expresses the priority and importance of talking, we want to encourage more talking too, so as well as talking to one another let’s seek creative ways as to how we can step up on talking to our maker. Maybe ask a friend to partner you once a week? Maybe include prayer in a text conversation? Maybe at the end of a family meal time give the whole conversation to God? `Church Get Talking’ Starts right here right now. Try Praying.

Praying when opposition comes

Hezekiah (724 – 695BC) “did what was right in the eyes of the Lord” (1 Kings 18: 3), he “trusted in the Lord” (1 Kings 18: 5), he "kept the commandments” (1 Kings 18: 6)

“King Hezeliah and the prophet Isaiah… cried out in prayer to heaven about this” (2 Chronicles 32: 20)

Read 2 Chronicles 32:1-2, 2 Chronicles 32:6-17, 2 Kings 19:1, 2 Kings 19:14-19

When opposition comes…

… go straight to God 

… worship Him for who He is 

… ask him to respond 

… be honest about your fears 

… make your request specific 

… desire God’s glory, not your own 

“Deliver us… so that all kingdoms on earth may know that you alone, O Lord, are God” (1 Kings 19: 19).

“Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4: 8-11
