OUR MASTER'S VOICE: When you sense God speaking to you a word of guidance, help, encouragement, assurance etc., if it is not confidential and is suitable for sharing, just fill one of the cards in the foyer or at GV, for display in the Prayer Room. This will be an encouragement to the fellowship as it demonstrates God's interest and concern for His people. It may be a scripture, a thought, a vision, a saying a verse of a song or even a prompting or answer to prayer. The cards will be displayed for one month from the date on the front as an indication of the way God is working amongst us.
