HOUSE OF PRAYER – SATURDAY 25 FEBRUARY
House of Prayer is an invitation to meet in your home with friends from church and combine some social time with prayer. We want this to be a day when the church gets serious about praying for the world, for the nation, for our community, for the church and for each other. You can do this in a number of ways:
Here are some prayer resources that you can use, if needed; or you can choose to pray as God leads on the day. Either way, make sure you spend some time praying for each other, as well as for the things God puts on your heart. If you sense God giving a word or picture that's for sharing, don't forget that you can do that by posting it in our online PRAYER JOURNAL.
AWAKE, AWAKE O CHURCH!
Awake, awake, O Church!
to rise and shine.
to open eyes, ears and mouths,
And toe the Spirit’s line.
to open up hearts of love,
And look upon those fields.
It’s time to pray,
‘Lord, mercy’ for a nation,
And then await those Jesus yields.
For let there be prayer in the life of the church,
Prayer in a church with life,
Life in the prayers of the church,
And life in a church with prayer.
For the church with prayer brings life,
And the church with life has prayer.
So, let’s stoke that flame,
In Jesus’ name,
And fan into flame that prayer gift.
For he who prays is prayerful, therefore careful,
And the name of Jesus uplifts.
For the prayer of the righteous,
unto asking and receiving.
The prayer of the righteous,
Unto ask, seek, knocking,
And yet always believing.
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS, SO LET'S PRAY!
