dear friends

On Wednesday, the 12th of September, as part of our ministry in Tottenham, England, we will begin our first community discussion group on Christian Spirituality. It’s taken us nearly three years of building relationships throughout the community to get to this point, but we finally feel that the time is right. Many of our relationships, however, are with Muslims (predominately), Hindus, and Buddhists, and so this new programming will, no doubt, bring many questions and even concerns for them.

With that in mind, on the weekend of September 7-10, myself and Jamie, as well as our team of volunteers, will be holding a 60 hour prayer vigil for our local ministry in Tottenham and for the beginning of our Christian discussion groups. It is our hope to have people praying with us throughout the world. The following are links to time zone sensitive sign up sheets, along with information about our project and a copy of the prayer guide.


It would be our honour if you would join us in prayer and even find a few of your friends and loved ones who might join us as well. As you can see, the time slots are only 30 minutes in length, so we are not asking for a huge commitment, though we would also be happy for you to sign up for as many of those slots as you like!

Once you and your loved ones have signed up, please send us the details so that we can add you to our own vigil sheet. It is our hope to have somebody praying during each of the 30 minute slots throughout that weekend. It would be great if we could receive these back by the 5th of September, the Wednesday before our vigil is to take place. Incidentally, if you don’t think that you can get people signed up, but would still like to sign up for a slot yourself, please feel free to simply let us know and we’ll get you added to our own vigil sheet.

Thank you in advance for all that your prayers will mean for our community. We will do our best to keep you updated on the work that God continues to do through your support. May God bless you as you serve your own local communities!

Tim & Jamie Miller

You can count on the prayers of our corps at Berkshire Community Church!! I will place it in the prayer letter that is distributed each week. This is truly exciting and inspiring! God will certainly do a mighty work in the coming days that lie ahead!!

Tim,

Thats a great strategy for prayer. I will pray! I might hurt my brain if I try to figure out the time zone thing, so I will just pray throught that time period.

Please pray for our ministry in Bridgeton New Jersey. We are trying to connect with the body of Christ on deep levels and seeking a full revival for our town. We need it DESPERATELY!
