One Sunday morning, D. L. Moody entered a house in Chicago to escort some children to Sunday school. During his visit, three men backed him into a corner and threatened him. “Look here,” Moody said. “Give a fellow a chance to say his prayers, won’t you?” The men actually allowed him to call out to God, and Moody prayed for them so earnestly that they left the room. What a great story about the power of prayer. The bible tells us that we are to: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” Phil 4:6 (God help us to be a people of prayer!)
*Please spend a few moments praying for the church.
+Things to pray for:
1. Pray that your pastor would preach apologetically each week. (Pray that God’s word be clear, precise, convicting, and glorifying to God in every word.)
2. Pray that our worship would include unashamed adoration. (Pray that those who attend our services would feel Gods presence and God’s glory would come down and meet with them. Pray that people would feel the freedom to worship God unreservedly.)
3. Pray that our church would include unceasing prayer. (Pray for the needs of the body of Christ, pray for the people who fill the chairs, pray and cry out for our community of lost souls, pray that God’s manifest presence would be evident in all we do.)
4. Pray that as a church there would be an unafraid witness. (Pray that as a body of believers we would be bold to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ realizing that it is the power of God to salvation to everyone who believes!)
