72 Hours of Prayer
Jesus said, "Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." Now for a full explanation of this passage, you should listen to the sermon from January 6 if you haven't already. But that bold promise of Jesus - "this I will do" - demands for bold and confident prayers from his people. We want to join as a church in asking God to accomplish the works of his kingdom through our body in order that the Father might be glorified.
Toward that end we are doing a couple different things. First, we are designating part of the worship gathering each week for an elder to lead in corporate prayer. This will be a time where the elder will pray for our body, for churches in the area, and for that nations. This pastoral prayer will allow us to join as a congregation in petitioning God each week to do the greater works that Jesus promised would be done through the church.
Second, we will devote time for 72 Hours of Prayer. We have divided three days into 30-minute time slots and are asking everyone in the congregation to sign up for one of these time slots, where you will devote that time to praying for God's glory. We have prepared a Prayer Guide to help guide you through this prayer time.
