Intro text

It started with a simple invitation to the Stewards' Trust family: to share different ways to pray in an open blog. Our hope was to inspire more prayer and new ways to pray. The result is an amazingly diverse and rich collection of contributions.

Let God have His say
Lucy Green (Senior Youth Worker)

This is the last of the 52WTP blogs by our fab Youth Team. Last but by no means least...here's Lucy!

I feel like a parody of myself writing this because I get teased by the girls I mentor for how much I bang on about journaling being God’s gift to me.
Bridge the gap
Matt Chisem (Senior Youth Worker)

“Prayer spans the chasm between the reality of our lives and the promises of God”
Hannah Kelly (Student Worker)

Youth team number 3 - it's Hannah!

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
Ibiza time
Jess Hughes (Senior Youth Workers)

Time to get to know another new member of our youth team through #52WTP...

Jackson Adkins (Youth Worker)

#52WTP is being taken over by our youth team for the next five weeks. Four of them joined us in September so we thought this would be a good way for you to get to know them a bit. We start with Jackson...
Too busy?
Simon Guillebaud
“Pray continually” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Psalmthing new
Francis and Olivia Montagu

At Lox Lane (a Stewards' Trust houseparty) this year we reflected on Psalms 121 and 130. Psalms are a great aid to prayer.
The power of an hour
Priscilla Smith

In my twenties I attended a conference at HTB called Change the World School of Prayer.  I had always believed in the power of prayer because my father modelled it and I hungered to be an intercessor as he was. Years later I found the file on my bookshelf and started to use it.
Mark Goldring

For various reasons I have struggled at times with the concept of Home. Perhaps I’ve struggled more with the concept of being settled in one place, knowing where I should be and what I should be doing with this ‘One precious life’.
Waiting on the Lord
John Whigham

I recently arranged a visit to my regular doctor. It so happens that the surgery got in a muddle and put me down for the wrong doctor. I was not happy!
