Call to Prayer

Corporate prayer is one of the most overlooked, underused events in the life of the local church. We wonder why the early church had such power in their outreach when the answer is made so clear. “All these were continually united in prayer, along with the women…” (Acts 1:14). Jesus told them, “...if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:19). The local churches were continuously united in prayer. These prayer times became even more important as the church experienced times of crisis. When Peter was thrown in jail “...earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.” (Acts 12:5). When Peter was miraculously rescued from that cell late into the night, he found the church gathered in prayer.

If the early believers found prayer to be so essential to their life, how much more should we? This Sunday is our monthly prayer walk through our neighborhood. Please meet us at 7:45 or 9:00 in the Atrium (east main entrance). You will be grouped up and a prayer guide will be given to help you as you walk. Praying over our city is an important responsibility of God’s people. I hope you will join us.

Let me take this opportunity to remind you of our weekly Praise and Prayer service every Wednesday evening from 6:00 to 6:30 in the worship center. This is one of the most significant activities on our weekly calendar as we come together to worship our Lord and spend time praying together. Please take advantage of this special service. It will be the best thirty minutes you spend all week. May this time be a priority for each of us and may we have the same results of the praying churches throughout the last 2000 years. “And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31).
