The church will be gathering to pray together on Sunday, April 16th at 6:30 pm. Fred Wolfe will be leading us in using the Psalms as a way to pray. We often look at the book of Psalms as the “worship book” of the Bible. And surely it is. It contains a hundred and fifty psalms that inform us about who God is and how we should praise and worship him. But it is also an excellent means of grace to help us pray in a God centered way. That includes prayers for the Lord to be exalted throughout the earth, prayers for our deliverance and prayers of lament. Fred will take a few minutes to instruct us on ways that we can use the Psalms to pray and then we will have time to pray individually and also in small groups.
Paul Miller wrote the book, A Praying Life, and most recently A Praying Church. In a recent article on why churches don’t pray together much anymore commented “We didn’t reach our career goals and attain the comforts we enjoy by sitting around, and yet praying together feels like we are sitting around.” May we fight against this mentality by praying together as a church.
Developing a Praying Life includes praying individually and in small groups like our home groups. But it also includes praying as a church, calling out to the Lord together for his help for our own needs and also for the needs of others. One of the biggest ways we can see God’s kingdom come on earth is to pray. When we get to heaven it will be interesting to find out all the things that happened because God’s people prayed. Please join us on April 16th as we pray together as a church.
