PRAYER MEETING

Charles Spurgeon once said, “I would rather teach one man to pray, than ten to preach.”Prayer is about depending on God; it’s intimacy with God that leads to the fulfillment of His purposes.Our church has a great history of believing prayer.

 

Today, as the church is experiencing a resurgence of growth and spiritual energy, we are declaring our dependence on God in fresh and new ways. Prayer is not the only thing we do–we just want it to be the first thing we do.

 

We invite you to join us on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm with others as we seek God together in prayer. We also want to equip you to become more effective in your personal prayer life. Prayer Meeting is held at the Church.

 

Quotes on prayer:

"What a PRAYER was that which came forth from the lips of Daniel! What humbling of soul it reveals! The warmth of heavenly fire was recognized in the words that were going upward to God. Heaven responded to that PRAYER by sending its messenger to Daniel. In this our day, prayers offered in like manner will prevail with God. "The effectual fervent PRAYER of a righteous man availeth much" (James 5:16).

 

 

As in ancient times, when PRAYER was offered, fire descended from heaven and consumed the sacrifice upon the altar, so in answer to our prayers, the heavenly fire will come into our souls. The light and power of the Holy Spirit will be ours. . . . That God who heard Daniel's PRAYER will hear ours when we come to Him in contrition," (Ellen White).

 

“Nothing of eternal significance is ever accomplished apart from prayer.” Dr. Jerry Falwell

 

“Prayerlessness is our declaration of independence from God.” Dr. Daniel Henderson

 

"You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed." A.J. Gordon

 

"God does nothing except in response to believing prayer." John Wesley (Famous evangelist who spent 2 hours daily in prayer)

 

"Prayer strikes the winning blow; service is simply picking up the pieces." S.D. Gordon

 

"One should never initiate anything that he cannot saturate with prayer." "The greatest thing anyone can do for God or man is pray." S.D. Gordon

 

"If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer." Martin Luther
