The power of prayer

15 Nov

It is a strange paradox that while every Christian knows that there is no better thing to do with our time than pray, at the same time we all struggle to make prayer a priority.  We struggle to move from the conviction that we should pray to the actual doing of prayer. There is no easy fix to this problem.  We simply have to bite the bullet and take practical steps to make prayer a priority.

 

Prayer is powerful.  In his mercy God has decided that he will work to bring about his plans and purposes in response to the prayers of his people.  As Christians we should pray for our world, our family, our friends and our community.  However, in Ephesians this term we have seen the priority of praying for our church.  We have been saved to be a part of the family of God – his church.  As a result prayer for our church should be a priority for all Christians.

 

We now release regular prayer notes. My prayer is that every member of St George North will take these sheets and use them daily to pray for their church.
