Do you believe that God hears and answers our prayers? Do you believe that prayer is an essential part of the Christian life? Do you feel the need for prayer for yourself and those whom you love? If so, come Wednesday to pray with others in our congregation.
Individual and private prayer is important. Group prayer is also important. Jesus spoke of this when He referred to His disciples “agreeing together” in prayer to God (Matthew 18:19).
The early churches understood this when they gathered for united prayer. “They raised their voices together in prayer to God” (Acts 4:24).
At this important and strategic time in our congregational life, prayer to God is essential. If we expect God to provide an excellent pastor of His choosing, we must pray. If we want the church to be unified, healthy and growing before the new pastor arrives, we must pray. If we want the church’s witness to be fruitful, we must pray.
The stated time and place for the prayer meeting is 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday. We meet in the Fellowship Hall (Room 109). Please come and pray. Take to heart and obey God’s invitation.
Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray” (1 Peter 4:7). “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). “Since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings” (Hebrews 10:21-22). “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people” (Ephesians 6:18). “Will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones who cry out to Him day and night?” (Luke 18:7)
God is listening. He wants us to come to Him with our requests. It pleases Him when we come together to pray.
