Becoming a House of Prayer, pt. 4

Yesterday we held our third session in our prayer class themed around Paul Miller's book, "A Praying Life".  We continue to have very consistent attendance - evidence that God has placed a hunger for deeper prayer lives in our congregation.  It's exciting to think about what he might do with that hunger!

This week we covered chapters 6-8 of the book, and I divided the session into three main topics based on those chapters:

  • Letting helplessness drive us to…

Becoming a House of Prayer, pt. 3

Previously, I've summarized our first prayer service, which we held at the end of December last year.  I mentioned that we were beginning plans for what we call an "Equipping Class" on prayer.  Last Sunday, we held our first session of the 10-week class.

We had 20 people attend, which we were all thrilled with.  Our Senior Pastor has mentioned the class a couple of times (including last Sunday) from the pulpit, and has provided a ton of support for us.  We are studying Paul Miller's…

Becoming a House of Prayer, pt. 2

If anyone prayed for our first prayer service on Sunday, Thank You!  God met us and gave us a great time of community prayer.

About 15 people participated, including several leaders.  We provided some instructions at the beginning and then we went into our prayer time.  We had selected 6 topics beforehand, and had identified a facilitator for each topic.  We took each topic in turn, with the facilitator sharing for 3-5 minutes on a couple of things they were thankful for in their area…

Becoming a House of Prayer, pt. 1

Last summer, a couple of the Elders of our church felt a nudge from God that we needed to move in the direction of being more of a praying church.  A group of about a dozen people began to gather every other week (it was the off-season for our small groups) to pray for the church, for our community, and for the development of the prayer ministry.

A core group of three of us continued to meet after the summer to make plans for launching a prayer ministry.  In this blog, which I expect…

Prayers God Loves to Answer: Praying for the Church (pt. 4)

Holding to the truth

Today is a day of confusion regarding truth, and that confusion has invaded the church.  Confusion reigns where the church fails to hold firmly on to the Word of God.

 

The letter to the church at Pergamum starts this way:  "These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword." (Revelation 2:12)  This double-edged sword is the word of God, which comes out of Jesus' mouth…

Prayers God Loves to Answer: Praying for the Church (pt. 3)

Perhaps no area of our walk with God is more challenged by our culture today than the area of sexuality.  Having strayed from the truth of God's word, as a society we no longer even know how to define gender.  More and more, our culture reflects Paul's warning to the Romans:

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools…

Prayers God Loves to Answer: Praying for the Church (pt. 2)

A civil worker in Kentucky loses her job for refusal to issue a license for a gay marriage due to her religious convictions.  A baker on Colorado is sued for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding, again due to religious convictions.  Celebrities who are believers get criticized for positions taken by their pastors on controversial topics.  Long-standing mottos like "In God We Trust" get challenged.

 

All around us, the church is challenged and squeezed by a culture that…

Prayers God Loves to Answer: Praying for the Church (pt. 1)

According to Christianity Today, the United Methodist Church's General Session this weekend will be determining the church's stance on LGBT/gender issues.  At stake are questions like whether to ordain LGBT ministers, whether to perform gay marriages, etc. (1)

 

The stakes are high in all of this, and there are believers on many sides in this issue.  Words like "love" and "grace" get tossed around a lot, with definitions being assumed and never really spelled out (if you don't…

Andrew, I would like to put the China Video in my prayer letter this week. But when I copied the url it would not work. Can you tell me how to get it?

Welcome to the South! I'm glad you were able to be at the VOM conference at First Baptist. I had wanted to attend but had a conflict. Please feel free to connect if you are in our area again.

Hi Andrew,

I moved here about 13 years ago. My husband, Rick and I felt lead to come and help with a church start up. I'm the Prayer Team Director at Redemption Gateway Church.  I finally had some time to check this out. How are you? Where do you live, attend church?

What have you learned on this site?

Thank you, Andrew. Coming back at you!

Thank you Andrew! God bless!

Thanks for your kind comments on my article. I appreciate it. God bless your work for him.

Andrew, I gave you an answer some weeks ago that was less than truthful. It was about praying for supreme Court Justices. I spend very little time praying for them. I lift their names. I know next to nothing about their personal lives.

Thanks Andrew for welcoming me to P.N and for the helpful links to various prayer interests. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi Andrew.  I'm sorry to admit that I'm not able to spend a lot of time on Pray! Network, so if you reviewed the book I sent you and commented on Pray! Network about it, I missed it.  So, would you let me know if you did receive it, and, if so, what you think of it.  I don't know if there are some formal steps a reviewer takes, or if you simply make a comment to me and/or Phil Miglioratti about it.  If you want to connect with me by email my address is stevehall_irm@msn.com.  Thanks much.  Steve Hall

You shared with me a resource that you wrote on praying together--I responded, but not sure if you received the response.  I am interested in seeing the book, and want to be fair to you and pay for it, but that is your choice--complimentary or pay--I would like to move forward in looking at it.  Do you want me to give you my address here or by separate E-mail?

 

Each of us may approach the subject of praying together differently, based on our experience, and I am one willing to learn from others.  I am always looking for ways that will encourage people to pray together. 

 

I appreciate your offer and look forward to hearing back from you.

 

Blessings,

 

Lewis Turner
