“Brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2 NIV
Over the last five weeks we have focused on prayer. We have considered who it is to whom we pray, what sort of things should occupy our prayers, as well as the value and importance of praying with one another. We will continue this Sunday with the question, “Why Shall We Pray?”
Wednesday, August 19, our evening will be devoted to living out the challenge.
We will gather in our newer building at 6:30 with a time of personal reflection and preparation for prayer. We all live busy lives. It will prove helpful to stop, take a few breaths, and prepare our hearts for prayer.
Brock DeWald will help set the stage for our prayer event with songs of worship. We will continue the evening with various stations for prayer, calling us to focus intentionally on specific areas and needs. Participants will move from station to station at their own pace, praying for the youth and children of our congregation and community, for our brother and sisters who face intense persecution in other parts of the world, and for our impact upon the world around us. There will be other specific needs to pray over. Feel free, however, to simply remain in one place, praying as the Lord guides you.
The schedule or methodology are not as important as gathering with one another and praying for others.
