Welcome to MBM
At this time of global upheaval and conflict in Ukraine we in MBM join with churches and Christians across the world to pray. It’s important to still ourselves and know that God is so much bigger and that our prayers make a difference. The enemy wants to divide and destroy, to cause great anxiety and fear, but we are seated in Heavenly places and have the authority in Jesus to stand against the devil’s schemes. Psalm 46 is a powerful reminder of God’s supremacy and the refuge and shelter He brings to all in need.
‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.’ (v 1-2)
Many are in great fear at this time and must feel that their world is shaking and that everything they were secure in has disappeared. Pray that God will protect them and open their hearts to His love and help. May help come to all in need, injured or afraid, to all who have nothing and nowhere to go. May there be miracles of kindness, of provision, of safety and help. May desperate hearts be opened to God’s love.
As we pray about the escalation of the war, reflect on these further verses from Psalm 46:
‘Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall, He lifts His voice the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us. The God of Jacob is our fortress.’ (v 6-7)
Yes nations are in uproar but its when God lifts up His voice, as He does through our prayers and acts of love, that ‘the earth melts’ Nothing can stand before Him. What word is God speaking above the uproar today? Will we listen and pray what He puts on our hearts?
Prince of Peace we pray together that you will make this war cease, end the senseless violence and melt to nothing all the strategies of Satan. Confound the evil agenda of Putin and bring an end to the suffering and chaos. May all turn to you and find your peace and shelter. In Jesus name, amen.

Letter From Marilyn
'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.'
Life can be such a rush, and it is so easy to get distracted and involved in things that are not really that important; but if we are going to have fruitful lives and really make a difference in this world we need to live in closeness and intimacy with Jesus Christ.

It’s only as we tune in to what is on his heart that we can really do the things that he has planned. We believe that all lives can be changed and restored as people come into intimacy with Father God, and that is what we want people to do – to hear Him for themselves more and more in their everyday lives and to experience the power of his presence in an ongoing way.
But we don't want to just give people some teaching. We want to help them draw strength from God for themselves in their everyday lives - to teach them how to meditate on God's word. For example, helping them start a prayer journal, to grow into a more intimate relationship with God. This is MBM’s goal – teaching people to ‘fish for themselves’.
Our refreshment and renewal events, whether they are one day or one week, give you the opportunity to take the time needed to learn how to really communicate with God and come into a deeper, closer friendship with him. Teaching from Tracy. Music to heal the heart from me. We would love for you to join us at one – or all!
With every blessing
