A People of Prayer

We prayerfully understand who God has created us to be and where the Spirit is calling us to make a difference, both individually and corporately.

We are a people of prayer. Everything we do is bathed in prayer, including understanding our calling as His people in this world. When the disciples prayed, God spoke and told them who to set apart and where to go. They prayed and the room shook and they were filled with boldness to share the truth of God’s love in Christ. When we pray, the Spirit of God moves in might ways. James 5:16 says, “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

When we pray and listen and allow God’s Spirit to lead us, we will make a difference in this world. Then we do the things God has planned for us to do. Paul says in Ephesians 2:10,” For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” This is true of us as individuals and as a Church.

This is how we work together in unity. By using our unique gifts and abilities as individuals, we can work together as one body, glorifying God and making a difference in our world. To God be the glory always.

    Pastor I saw a list calling for prayers for certain members of the church on the bulletin board behind the ladies serving snacks and drinks. After each name, two names were asked for to pray for that individual. Does this mean we pray in our own prayer time, or does it have to mean going up and praying at the front of the church? No one around there was certain and since you are discussing pray, I thought this would be a good time to ask.

      Hi Faith! That list is actually not on the bulletin board right now, but I think you’re referring to the staff prayer partners list. You can commit to pray for one of the staff members by signing up there. It’s a 3-month commitment that you can do at home (or wherever), not in front of the church. You’ll get a list of some prayer requests from the staff member and some general prayer ideas to help you guide your prayer time. There will be a new list coming up soon if you’d like to sign up for the next 3-month period.

        Thanks Jason I would like to sign up for the prayer list for the staff members. I will keep an eye out for the list. Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. I am new to facebook, but I was happy to friend you.
