These are prepared every 6 to 8 weeks and are sent by e-mail to people who have requested them. Flame only exists because of prayer – we believe that. We are very appreciative of all of those who pray for us, especially for the difficult hurdles we encounter in keeping on air 24 x 7. If you want to be sent these prayer letters and updates regularly by e-mail then please contact Derek Lindley via firstname.lastname@example.org.
ENCOURAGEMENTS TO PRAYER

5 REASONS … in 2010 we were challenged by Matt Redman’s “10,000 Reasons” to broadcast that actual number of reasons for prayer. Hence our weekday “5 reasons” and our determination to complete to 10,000 marathon … currently estimated to be reached at Easter 2020. We welcome your own personal reasons for record and broadcast.
4 MINUTES … as 2016 is a leap year we are determined to use the extra day for prayer, which spread over the whole year results in 4 minutes per day. Please join us in recording prayers for broadcast and remember that prayer is a powerful weapon in a Christian’s armoury. 2 Corinthians 10 says “for the weapons of our warfare …………….”
