Catch-Up

Pray.Network Coordinator commented on P. Douglas Small's blog post The Case for Corporate Prayer - Part 1
"In my humble opinion… It should never be one without the other. Just as an airplane needs to wings to fly, prayer is both personal (one on one with Jesus) and public (two or three gathered in his name talking to him together)."

Marta Gemelli commented on P. Douglas Small's blog post The Case for Corporate Prayer - Part 1
"Look at Acts 2:42. Those who started the church and spent three years under Jesus' teaching and example practiced corporate prayer. Andrew Murray compared prayer to a tree. The roots are our private prayer life. The leaves are corporate prayer.…"

Paul "Mike" Kadow commented on P. Douglas Small's blog post The Case for Corporate Prayer - Part 1
"I don't agree, prayer is private, look at Jesus and how he prayed!"

The Case for Corporate Prayer - Part 1

In a culture where the individual is everything, a congregational prayer meeting is perceived simply, as a lot of individuals in the same room praying. Sadly, we are blind to the critical importance of corporate prayer. We fail to see the difference between the individual’s right and privilege of prayer, not to diminish its value or power, and corporate prayer, from the office of the church.Eugene Peterson lamented,The single most widespread American misunderstanding of prayer is that it is…See More

A Look at the Task

There are two billion people who call themselves Christians. Of those, only 680 million (11.5 percent) are Evangelicals or Bible reading Christians. Our task is to wake up 1.3 billion sleeping Christians and simultaneously reach the other 4.5 billion people on the earth. Those billions live in 200 nations,…See More

Kneel and Receive this Christmas

There are probably few images more evocative than the manger – that of the shepherds and the Wise Men kneeling before the babe, Christ Jesus. We know that it is unlikely that the two groups were there at the same time, and also, the Biblical record doesn’t include the angels that we place around the primitive scene, but we sense that in that moment kings and common men, indeed, heaven and earth were drawn together. It is a kind of cosmic, but simple image. God has come – in innocence. And men,…See More

Fixing Our Location on the Journey

Almost everyone has used an automobile GPS navigation system. We turn it on. It finds our location on the face of the earth within a few feet. It identifies the street we are on and the direction in which our vehicle is headed. We input a destination – even points along some route. We set additional perimeters – fast route, scenic route and more. And then the journey begins. The GPS barks out the commands – turn right, turn left. Keep to the right. Move to the left. Merge onto this road or…See More

Are You Thankful for Prayer?

The majority of the world lives without the hope offered by Christ. The open door to God’s throne is a unique post-resurrection-ascension-enthronement Christian notion and unique privilege. That we can pray, pour out our souls to a God who cares, is an incredible privilege. That we get answers from God is beyond incredible. Sadly, prayer is now seen as passé. It is the most under-utilized privilege afforded believers. The average American Christian prays only four minutes a day. God leaves his…See More

Andrew R. Wheeler commented on P. Douglas Small's blog post What does prayer look like in your church service?
"To answer the question in the blog title, prayer in my church service looks exactly like you described it.  We might pause for a moment of prayer (by the worship leader) during worship - not always, but sometimes.  And we pray to close the…"

What does prayer look like in your church service?

Every congregation needs three essential gatherings – one for worship, one for teaching and training (discipleship), and one in which the congregation meets God in corporate prayer. These are not exclusive one of the other. As the church gathers for prayer, there should be at the heart of the meeting, a worshipful…See More

For example, at the heart of every ministry…See More
