Will you pray with us? A week of prayer to start the year
When we gather in prayer, we believe that our Father in heaven hears us. Even more importantly – we believe that He is with us when we gather in prayer, and that He even answers our prayers. Everyday Church was literally prayed into existence. We believe in the power of prayer to change hearts, heal the sick and bring the kingdom of God to our neighborhood and our city. When we pray together, powerful things happen. So to start 2016, we’d like to invite you to join us in the most impactful thing we can do as a faith family: praying together. We have a powerful God on our side who is listening and ready to be in conversation with us. So will you join us in praying every day?
For the week of Jan 18-24, there will be a prayer gathering somewhere in our neighborhood – at least one – every day. There is also a prayer focus and scripture for each day as well. Make time on your schedule to be at as many of these events as you can and to pray with us wherever you are throughout this week. Let’s be radical in our commitment to pray together and be especially intentional to speak and listen to our Father during this week.
Will you join us in this prayer commitment? We hope you will. Let’s prepare our hearts to be amazed by the powerful God we serve. There’s no telling what He may do in response to our faithfulness.
