‘If what stands in your way is too high to climb, too hard to dig under or too big to go round — it’s time for mountain-moving prayer!’ — Anthony Delaney, Ivy Church, Manchester
The toughest challenges can be tackled, defeated and shifted aside by faith-fuelled prayer. Relational struggles, financial strangleholds, emotional strife; whatever your mountain, through prayer God’s power can move it.
The huge challenges casting shadows across our communities can also be addressed through prayer. ‘God will move our personal mountains, but we mustn’t stop there. His goal is to transform the lives of those around us as well,’ observes Debra. ‘God’s call to me from the very beginning was to focus prayer on the big, specific issues causing social fragmentation: lack of aspiration amongst young people, elderly isolation, family failures, distrust and separation between ethnic groups. These mountains need moving in most neighbourhoods.’
‘I work with police colleagues of many faiths and many of no faith — all are in awe when they witness what can be unlocked in this way.’ — Olivia Pinkney QPM MA, Chief Constable, Hampshire Constabulary
