New Wine was wonderful!  Dr RT Kendall spoke on Forgiveness; and then a number of speakers were on the theme of Prayer.  In our readings, Solomon was offered anything, and he chose wisdom to govern well - a good prayer.  We need to set time aside to pray, and persevere in prayer.  Romans 8 reminds us that God has given us his Spirit, who prays within us.

Who is the Holy Spirit?  The Power of God.  Even after the Resurrection and Ascension, the disciples were frightened; but the Spirit made all the difference.  We need this Power today - power, not as the world sees it, but as God sees it.
