The February topic is a comment on God's response to prayers by groups, large or small.
I would imagine that more prayers have been said by more people than ever before for this dreadful virus to get out of our lives. So we can safely assume, can we not, that the incredible success rate of the magnificent biochemists across the world and the results of the phenomenal dedication of doctors, nurses, carers and all other key workers, is truly an answer to all our prayers?Spurred on by just having completed an excellent Prayer Course run by the Rev'd Nicki Farr, it has got me thinking about the power of praying in groups, large or small.
If only one or two people had prayed for a successful response to all of the scientific research and care undertaken over the last year then would the response of our Lord have been the same?
Clearly a hypothetical question, which raises a lot of other questions, without any way of coming to an answer, but one worth thinking about don't you think?
