On the first Sunday of each month we normally take communion together. Let’s do that, but do it at home. Make sure you have what you need, like crackers or whatever – and let’s make sure those among us who shouldn’t go out to the grocery store have what they need too. It will be different, for sure, but I think it will still be a great experience.
Our 9am Sunday prayer time together has kind of fallen off the radar. Let’s get that back on track in a virtual format. Nicole Cornett has agreed to be the point person for that, so please start by connecting with her on it. Here is a great reminder from David Guzik on the importance of prayer, especially at this time.
Together as a church we are praying for God to do several things. For the month of June we are using this prayer calendar to help guide us in cooperate and private prayer. Please print this calendar and pray with us!
For one week, thousands of believers around the world will gather to pray.
November 28 – December 2, 2010 7:00pm (Eastern & Pacific Times)
The Week of Prayer & Fasting is simply believers coming together to pray, November 28 – December 2, 2010, beginning at 7pm Eastern and Pacific times.
Each night, connected via high-bandwidth internet video, churches across the country and around the world join together via the web, and begin to pray. Though not all the churches are visible on the webcast, all the churches are praying and worshipping in unison.
Individuals can login from their home computers to watch, and submit prayer requests during each webcast. A special internet prayer group prays live, in real-time, with individuals logged on from home.
Pastors help to guide the times of prayer, offering suggestions for prayer topics, and brief words of encouragement.
Last year, thousands of believers from over 35 states and 2 dozen countries joined together in prayer, and many more are expected to participate this year.
This week we look at Christ’s High Priestly Prayer. It’s the longest example in Scripture of Christ’s actual words while praying. In it, we’ll see Him pray for Himself, and then intercede for His disciples and all believers throughout the church age.
