Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
One of the most amazing things about the life of Jesus is the amount of time he spent in prayer. He only had three years of public ministry but he always set apart time to meet with his Father.
We want to invite you to join us together with other churches in Canada to this week of prayer. Here are a few ways to participate:
- Download the prayer guide and use this tool on your own or together with others to pray during the week.
- Invite your life group to spend your time this coming week in prayer.
- Join us on Tuesday in the youth Center for a corporate time of prayer. January 24, 7-8pm.
A few other things to add to your prayers this week:
- The candidating for lead pastor
- Our faith goals of 100 people meeting Christ and 150 being baptized
Our prayer for our church family this coming week is one Paul prayed for believers in Colossians
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
Colossians 1:9–14, NIV
