Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them
pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is
anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over
them" James 5:13-14 NIV
Whatever you face, whatever you feel, James encourages you to pray. There are many forms of prayer, here James means the
most simple - just talk to God! No need
for big words, jargon or religious language. No specific place or posture.
Anywhere and anytime: whilst doing the washing up, gardening, in the shower, anywhere! God will be listening, indeed, looking forward to hearing
from you. As the classic old hymn says, take it to the Lord in
What a Friend we
have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to
carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we
often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, All because we do
not carry everything to God in prayer.
It is well worth
reading the rest of the words. Even better - sing it! Just between you
& God. Makes the washing up more fun too.
