21 DAYS OF FASTING AND PRAYER
"FOR NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD" LUKE 1:37
Join us the next two Wednesdays 6.pm as we come together to pray for our church.
The psalmist opens us to the privilege of prayer when he says, "I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!" (Ps 116:1-2 NLT).
John Calvin defines prayer as
"an emotion of the heart within, which is poured out and laid open before God. In prayer we both communicate and commune with our Father in heaven, feeling our transparency in His presence. Like Christ in Gethsemane, we cast our desires, sighs, anxieties, fears, hopes, and joys into the lap of God. Through prayer, a Christian puts his worries bit by bit on God. We are permitted to pour into God’s bosom the difficulties which torment us, in order that He may loosen the knots which we cannot untie. Prayer is the outpouring of the soul, the deepest root of piety, the bedrock of assurance. Prayer is the most important part of the Christian life; it is the lifeblood of every true believer "
Oh! That we could come with confidence before him on behalf of our church and cry out to him.
See You Tomm Night!!
