“When we depend upon organizations, we get what organizations can do;
when we depend upon education, we get what education can do;
when we depend upon man, we get what man can do;
but when we depend upon prayer, we get what God can do.” – A. C. Dixon
Apart from God we can do nothing (John 15:5). So tomorrow, Saturday April 27th at 7:00pm, we will be coming together to call out to God in prayer. In this corporate prayer and communion gathering, called Last Saturday, we are active in our prayers, speaking our praises and petitions out loud to the Lord. We are also very intentional as we pray for specific prayer requests and focuses. These prayer topics come from the Bible as we pray through specific scriptural passages.
If you have never been a part of a prayer meeting, I encourage you to come and pray. Join us as we ask God to change our hearts, to change our community, and to keep us united. We will also take communion together. The doors will be open at 6:30pm for those who would like to come early for personal prayer. The gathering will begin at 7:00pm. Here is a preview of the text we will be praying through:
“1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:1-11)
