Verse For The Weak

Each week, as part of our family service we have a ‘verse for the weak’, looking at a particular verse or verses from the Bible to encourage us in our walk as Christians. A summary of this is then sent out to members of the fellowship in our weekly prayer email. We have decided to share this with our wider on-line family through this web-site. It is our hope and prayer that these verses and the associated comments will be a great encouragement to you.

Every blessing,

Pastor Barry.

“Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;”  Colossians 4:2 In this verse we see Paul exhorting the church in Colosse to “Continue in prayer”.  The Greek word used for “continue” is proskartereo and it conveys the meaning of persevering and being devoted.  In other words Paul is urging the Colossian church to […]
