“If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

 From The Pastor’s Desk……..

We give our condolences to Linda and Jeff Plackett.  Linda’s Mum went home to be with The Lord last Monday.  Please remember Linda, Jeff and the family in your prayers at this time.

Several months ago we began to pray for Alan Haigh at 7am and 7pm, suggesting that we set the alarm on our mobile phones to alert us.  I would like to suggest that we also pray for Janet Glover and Brian Meredith’s Brother in Law. Janet is currently home from hospital after her operation on the spine.  She will undergo extensive follow up treatment over the next 5 months.  Brian’s brother in law has stomach cancer and is living with dementia.  Please pray that he, and Brian’s sister accept The Lord as their Saviour.

Through the Oasis Christian Centre, Beeston’s Special Account we have been able to help Janet in practical preparation for her coming home out of hospital.

This Saturday would have been Beeston Carnival.  Sadly this is one of the local events that will not be taking place this year.  Please pray for the town.  It is gradually opening up.  Like most of the UK the traders are finding life tough at this time.  Please remember the Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic. Deputy Leader, Steve Carr and Chief Executive, Ruth Hyde as they serve the Borough.

Please continue to remember in your prayers:-

  • A number of our congregation who are waiting for test results.
  • Mr T, Pearl Hall.
  • Our Young People and Young Adults waiting for exam results and decisions about their next educational steps.
  • Pastor James Talbot and the Elim Church in West Bromwich. We are helping to support Pastor James through Oasis’ Special Account.
  • For all those taking, or planning on taking, a “Staycation” this Summer. That we would be Refreshed physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
  • For a vaccine to be found for Covid 19.
  • For our Prime minister, Boris Johnson, and all those in Government and serving as M.P’s in Parliament at this time.
  • For a Mighty Move of God’s Spirit in our land.
  • Rev Chris Cartwright and the National Leadership Team of the Elim Pentecostal Churches, as they lead the denomination at this time.
  • Pastor Nigel, Carol Carberry, Lee Glazier and Alan Haigh – Oasis’ Servants Council, as we seek to lead Oasis forward in The Will of The Lord.

I am using, as a personal developmental devotional, Alicia Britt Chole’s book “The Sacred Slow” – A Holy Departure From Fast Faith.(Harper Collins Publishers, 2017). In the chapter 12 entitled “God In The Room.” (p58) She inspires us to remember:-

“God does not leave. God does not forsake. In every season, in every moment, God is in the room.

  • God-in the-room transitions our souls from visiting a well to living in a spring.
  • God-in-the-room means that our angst about things that happened in His absence refocuses more accurately to angst about what happened in His Presence.
  • God-in-the-room offers the certainty that whatever the story and wherever the wounds, we are never alone and we are fully known.
  • God-in-the-room means each thought is heard, every tear is counted, all joys are shared, and no question is unwanted.
  • God-in-the-room opens the door for our Life-Maker to be our Life-Mentor.
  • God-in-the-room means that Immanuel – God with us – is more than a song.”
