We call to mind the powerful story of Jesus arriving in Jerusalem and decluttering the temple. During this full week programme, we look to examine and take to heart His powerful words, which still resonates to this day “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’?” Mark 11:17 NIV
Since it’s conception as a Christian community, over 75 years ago, Lee Abbey has always been a ‘House of Prayer for all Nations’. Come and join the Lee Abbey Community of today, both onsite and online, as we jointly hear again God’s call to be a House of Prayer.
Over the week we will dig down into this calling, led in prayer and learn what it takes for us be a people of prayer. This week might look a little different to other conferences. There will still be the same warm welcome and wonder of this place, but a slightly less demanding engagement with others, creating opportunities for both the resident community and those who are staying for a shorter length of time to encounter the grace and goodness of God together. We will be assisted through this journey by the wisdom and experience of Jill Weber and 24/7 Prayer Team. Jill will help us to see how her story, as the leader of a House of Prayer for many years, our story and God’s story can all be used to ‘springboard’ us into prayerful response today. We will also be joined throughout the week through digital technology by friends from around the globe to encourage and inform our prayers.
