The sense that we were being called to learn to bless our local area began with a number of people, during the time of Prayer 24-7 people back in May 2011. We were particularly inspired by a book called “The Grace Outpouring” by Roy Godwin & Dave Roberts about a retreat house which committed themselves to pray for blessing on their local area and saw great blessings in their little Welsh valley.
AN HOUR OF PRAYER FOR BLESSING
Spend Some time Praising God for who He is
and what He has done
Then pray about areas of your life where you need to repent: Turn from anything you know to be wrong and ask his forgiveness and for Him to fill you afresh with His Holy Spirit.
Take time to quietly receive from God His forgiveness, His love and His Spirit.
Pray for blessing on the Tas Valley Area and Norfolk using the framework overleaf and the month’s pointers
Pray for blessing on our nation and the wider world including the Caleb Prayer
If you have agreed and arranged to do so get in touch with the next Prayer Partner and pray for a blessing on them as they begin their hour eg. the Aaronic Blessing.
