An Environment Of Prayer

There are many ways we can be involved in prayer at Grace Chapel.

Building a life of prayer in the people of God is just one of the practices of the Christian life and the church. There are several elements that constitute the life of a Christian. One of these is a solid prayer life.

We have talked about how to approach prayer in general at the church. We want to continue to provide an environment of prayer for those who come to us. What does that mean? This means that we spend time praying at every circumstance and situation that is available to us.

An environment of prayer means we pray all the time and every time we are together.

Here are a few examples of the ways we pray as a church.

  1. We pray during and after rehearsal on Thursday nights
  2. We pray everyday at school assembly
  3. We pray when ever someone comes into the office
  4. We pray at the home group every Wednesday night
  5. We pray on Sunday morning before service begins
  6. People pray at home and pray for each other when the need arises
  7. We have network of intercessors.

In addition, our prayer team takes prayer requests. Carol or myself is contacted by phone or email. The requests are then passed to the prayer team and prayer is conducted as everyone passes the request.

We have truly created an environment of prayer here at Grace Chapel.

Let us continue to pray and watch.

Eph.6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.  

It is great to be surrounded by so much prayer.

  1. Do you see yourself surrounded by and environment of prayer?
  2. How does your view ministry change when you see people praying and watching?
  3. Have you joined yourself lately with others to pray for various people, ministry, and projects?
