IT IS TIME To Pray For Our Land!

On the 9th September, thousands of people from all over Ireland will gather at Nutts Corner to pray for the healing of our land.  This day is for all who believe that our island has a desperate need for healing, renewal and reconciliation.  Not only is there a political vacuum in our country, but also a massive spiritual and emotional void in our people.  Our political impasse reflects quite graphically the personal crisis and despair of so many hearts.  Over the years, so much has been tried to find a long-term solution to our problems, but answers have eluded us.  Where do we turn now?

Some will say that the last thing we need is more religion – ‘Did that not help to get us into this monumental mess?’  The 9th September is not about sectarian religion that divides, but is about the Spirit of God uniting ordinary people in truth.  It is a call to all who sense that there is more to Christianity than we have experienced in much of our history.  We need God to do something new and fresh among us!

Albert Einstein’s definition of ‘insanity’ was ‘Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’.  Thomas Jefferson said, ‘If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done’.  When was the last time a national assembly for prayer took place?  Surely the time has come – the time is now!

It is time for those who believe our only answer is found in answer to prayer to unite together, petitioning God in Jesus’ name for real transformation.

If you agree, please join us: 9th September 2017, 1:00pm-4:00pm, Nutts Corner Market Area.  Thank you, we look forward to joining you there!

Transportation to Day of Prayer

We have been excited to hear about groups throughout the land who are organising buses to bring people to the day of prayer.  If your group is planning on bringing a bus on 9th September please send us an email to healingthelandni@gmail.com and let us know where you are coming from.  We have some people interested in coming but have no transportation and we would love to see what we can do to help them out.

Got questions about life?

Everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.  Healing the Land will be hosting Alpha this spring in the Maghera community.  Alpha is for anyone who is curious.  The videos and talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.  No question is out of bounds and people are free to discuss as much or as little as they want. 

Alpha will be held on Tuesdays at 8pm starting 21st March, 2017 at the Maghera Cross Community Link, 49 St. Lurachs Road, Maghera (next to the Movie House cinema.)

Everyone is welcome!
