I have only seventeen months left in Richhill. I have greatly enjoyed my time here. As I look back one of my regrets is that I did not pray more. I have to admit that I struggle to pray.
John Stott writes the following: 'In Paul's apostolic ministry, preaching and prayer go together.' It is so easy to spend all our time writing sermons and yet neglect the ministry of prayer. Indeed our preaching would be much more effective if it was prepared in prayer.
