Day 312 – Wed 12 July – I did a load of adminy/ planning stuff in the morning and then got on with painting. It seems to be taking forever, there’s a deadline of painting in the loft to be done by Monday. The other slight disaster was in trying to move the metre, we (the builders and I) weren’t ready for the appointment so the electric company arrived and wouldn’t wait for the hole to be dug out. We’re back to square one trying to get appointments so at some point it’ll be hours on hold again. I was painting in the afternoon and then got some reading done.
We had our first summer prayer meeting which was well attended and went through the Lord’s Prayer, 3 or 4 folk praying after every petition. It worked well and there was good comeback after it. It makes people think in how they pray and allows Jesus to set the priorities in prayer. I wouldn’t do it everytime but it’s probably worth throwing it in occasionally.
