Weekly Prayer Focus

Each week the Eastern Baptist Association will produce a Weekly Prayer Focus for a different member church across the region. We hope you will be able to use the article and accompanying PowerPoint and PDF to encourage you and your churches in prayers for others in the association.

London Road Baptist Church in Lowestoft is blessed to be the most easterly church in the denomination and the site of the last major spirit-led revival in the UK, the “Forgotten Revival” of March 1921. To see the ‘sun’ rise first sums up LRBC’s vision for today. A Jesus people wanting to see the ‘Son’ rise up over Lowestoft, and encounter a fresh revival of the out-pouring of God’s Holy Spirit. The ministry team is led by Senior Minister Revd Neal Smith, and includes a Community Chaplain and Minister-in-Training, two Community Workers, a Youth Specialist and a Children and Families Worker.

This week our attention turns to the Norfolk market town of King’s Lynn, home to Cornerstone King’s Lynn Baptist Church. Cornerstone sits in the heart of South Lynn, a centre of regeneration over the past 15 years, where it is the sole church among many new homes and businesses.

This has enabled a greater outward focus of…
