Prayer

"It is written, 'he said to them, 'My house will be called a house of prayer''"
Matthew 21:13
All are invited out to our Wednesday Prayer Nights @ 7pm @ the church. There is no childcare but KIDS ARE WELCOME! They can learn to pray themselves by the example of their parents, or can be kept occupied. We don't mind fidgety kids in our midst - church should be real, and this often provides many teaching moments.
It's no exaggeration to say that EVERYTHING in God's Kingdom is dependent on prayer. It's also no stretch to say that prayer is one of the most often neglected practices of the Church. I mean, everyone 'prays', but we do it in passing, while making coffee, while driving, while riding the train, while walking the dog, etc. Don't get us wrong, the Bible says that we should 'pray always', and 'in all things', so there is nothing wrong with praying during any/all of these events in life, but do we also set time aside just to pray? Is it a deep habit and reality of our lives?

It's our desire that our Church would be known as a house of prayer - so we open it up midweek to just pray together, with any/all who would come. And by 'just pray' that is not to belittle it as being something insignificant (like when someone says, 'well I guess I can just pray') - as if it's the thing we do after exhausting all other efforts (which we often do).  Prayer should be the priority - the first (and last) thing that we do!

May we live a lifestyle of prayer together - by setting aside personal time to speak with the Lord of Glory, praying through the busy moments in life (which are many) and praying together as a Church.
