Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Philippians 2:12-18 & Mark 1:29-39 and think about the following:
1. (Phil 2:12) What attitude does Paul talk about here? What does it look like for you?
2. (Phil 2:13) What does it mean to know God is at work in us?
3. (Phil 2:15) What does it mean to shine like a star?
4. (Phil 2:17) How are we poured out?

Birthday
We celebrate with and pray for Maria Njofang on her birthday this week.

Events
‘Healed by the Father’s Love’ is an afternoon seminar session, including tea and a great opportunity to invest time into discovering the 'Father Heart' of God and exploring how He sees us.
This event can really help us grasp what it means to be a child of God. We may, or may not have grown up in a positive, loving and wholesome environment with good parental role models, but this seminar set can teach us new depths to God's love for us, whatever our background and understanding of parenthood. It is highly recommended for everybody to take part!
Please let Steve know this morning if you plan to attend later today.
        
Prayer
Blessed are you, Sovereign God, king of the nations, to you be praise and glory for ever. From the rising of the sun to its setting, your name is proclaimed in all the world. As the Sun of Righteousness dawns in our hearts, anoint our lips with the seal of your Spirit that we may witness to your gospel and sing your praise in all the earth. Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer Challenge
At church this week choose someone you don’t know very well, or perhaps have never spoken to before. Introduce yourself and find out their name. Pray for them each day this week.
Prayer is powerful and even if you are unsure what to pray for this individual, be assured that your prayers, however small, will make a difference! If you are feeling extra brave, ask them if there is anything specific you could pray for and check how they are next time you see them.
