Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Ephesians 6:10-20 and think about the following:
(v10-13) What is the true struggle of our lives and how can we combat that?
(v14-17) Picture each piece of armour and what it stands for. Pray that each one would be readily available to you.
(v18-20) Paul emphasises the importance of prayer. How should we pray?

- Alpha Course is on Monday evenings, now meeting at the earlier time of 6.30pm for dinner and 7.00pm for the video and discussion. Please take an invite from the foyer for your friend/family member. Speak to Hannah, Dwayne, Sandra or Anne R for more info. We need more cooks for Sept/Oct.
- Don’t forget to visit our Community Care Charity Shop in Nickson Road. It raises money for local needs and is a place of welcome for those needing a listening ear.

Lord, thank you that you equip us to face the battles we need to in life. Help us to turn to you more; to be reminded that you will support us in every way if we just ask. Thank you for the gift of prayer; that we are able to communicate with you, our wonderful Creator and Saviour. Thank you for putting others around us who understand our struggles and can support us. Help us to do so for them too. Amen.
