Prayer is simply listening and talking to God. At Mariners, prayer is at the heart of all we do.
Prayer is central to seeing transformation take place in our lives, in our community and in our city. When we pray, we see change taking place. We are changed and our situations change. Prayer changes things because God hears and answers us. Many things that are difficult or impossible for us to change do nevertheless change when we bring them to God in prayer. For Him, nothing is impossible!
We meet on Mondays for an hour at 8am in the Hall (on the corner of Southgate Street and Llanthony Road). This is a great opportunity for those heading to work to begin their day with God. Starting with worship, we also break bread together and pray for topical issues.
We meet on Wednesdays for an hour at 8am in the Hall. We share ‘Good News’ stories, worship together and then pray for topical issues concerning our world, nation, community, church and each other.
This meets on the first Wednesday of the month in church at 8pm. Small groups don’t meet on the first Wednesday of the month; instead, we all come together for Furnace at the church.
We spend unhurried time worshipping and praying together. Worship is contemporary and prayer is dynamic, fast paced and in varied forms to keep the body and mind active! Again, we pray for our world, our nation, our community, our church and each other.
This meets in the Hall on the fourth Saturday of the month at 8.30am for breakfast followed by worship and prayer. We finish by 10am. This is especially good for those who (for reasons of work or childcare) cannot make our midweek prayer gatherings.
Prayer Partnerships & Triplets
Many of our members meet together at least once a month in single sex pairs or triplets to share in confidence, to be accountable to one another and to pray for one another. Mostly, members take the initiative in organising this, praying with others they feel particularly comfortable with.
You will be given a chance to be prayed for confidentially by a member of the prayer ministry team at the end of any of our celebrations.
‘Sozo’ is simply a Greek word that means ‘saved, healed, delivered’ and encompasses everything that God wants us to experience as we encounter Him.
If you would like someone to pray with you in confidence about deep seated issues or problems, please contact us and we will put you in touch with one of our team who you can trust and confide in.
