There is currently a Beatitudes exhibition in Church. The Beatitudes is one of a series of displays installed by http://www.deo-gloria.co.uk The opening words of Jesus’ most famous recorded sermon, “The Sermon on the Mount,” (Matthew Chapter 5) are often known as The Beatitudes. These words have inspired and challenged countless people over the centuries. These ten screens each look at the Beatitudes in terms of “peace”: “personal peace”; “peace in relationships”; “peace worldwide” and underpinning all these “peace with God”. Because the concept of peace is concerned with people and their response to God most of the photographs used on the screens are of people.

A year ago I wrote this in our feedback: Many more prayers were said on that day. We left with the assurance as Sue (one of our team members) said ‘God wants to do far more than we can imagine – so we are encouraged to ask for more!” A year later we can see God has done just that. Our team continues to grow with many Iranians joining us as they seek to continue their journey in the Christian faith while they are applying for asylum in England. Last month we encouraged everyone whose English is limited to look for a short prayer in English during the month and learn it. We also gave them a card with Bible promise or blessing for them to read as they prayed for passers-by. This is an account of one of the team members: “A woman sat down to be prayed for. She had been suffering from depression caused by problem neighbours. Partner had taken matters in his own hands and police were involved. She was separated from her partner whilst having care for depre

Our HOTS team has multiplied in numbers such a great deal that we had to divide the team in 3 groups. Each group takes turns to Distribute the leaflet’s and pray for passers-by Stand at the back of the chairs and silently pray for the team who is distributing leaflets and silently pray for passers-by to hear God’s invitation to be prayed for. Go inside St Martin’s church and pray. This can be an opportunity for the team to pray for each other and also to pray for St Martin’s for its protection, for its leaders, guidance and faithfulness to promote the Gospel of Jesus. This worked well and we hope to follow this pattern or adapt it if necessary. It seemed to be that each group felt they were taking part in all aspects of this ministry. An Iranian team member was keen to pray while it was her group’s turn to be at the back of the chairs. Because her English was very limited we encouraged her to pray ‘God, send your Holy Spirit on this place’ a

On April 2nd we had our first bilingual Healing on the Streets training course. We had about 50 people attending and the majority had Farsi as their first language. We were fortunate to have some team members who speak both English and Farsi so the translation was shared amongst them. In the afternoon we went out onto Edgbaston St to pray for passers-by. As the team was very large we divided it into three separate teams. One would give out the leaflets. The other would pray for passers-by as and when required. The third team would go into the church to pray for the teams outside. After a while the teams would rotate to give a chance for everyone to participate in all three activities. In the feedback of last month we talked about people who keep coming back to HOTS for more prayers. Below is an account of one of those prayers. The team pray for a lady from Worcester. She wanted prayer by proxy for her mother who has heart problem and her father who has lung cancer
