One of the concepts embraced by the National Day of Prayer Organization is that, “prayer is our Declaration of Dependence upon God”! This is an uncommon view in our 21st century, society where we are encouraged to be independent individuals. Here at Eastwick Worship Center, we whole-heartedly agree with the N.D.P.O.’s concept. We desire to experience Koinia (Connectedness and Fellowship), by sharing in prayer through corporate prayer in weekly prayer gatherings, as well as through prayer retreats and cell groups.
We realize that if Jesus Christ, who is our example, found it necessary to still away to spend quiet time alone conversing with His Heavenly Father, how much more we need to do the same. Prayer is our life-line and it is a necessary discipline if we are to be conduits of God’s grace, hope and love toward a society in desperate need to experience His transforming power. Prayer helps us to refocus our thinking and enables us to follow the Apostle Paul’s writing in II Corinthians 10:5, “Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” NKJV
According to Dr. Richard Brown’s Teachings on Prayer, “The secret of prayer is disclosed not in intricate theories, but in pursuit of prayer and in demonstration of its promised power.” We are to pray for God’s Kingdom and His agenda to be experienced. All true prayer is an expression of our desire for the will of God.
We want you to know that you matter to us. Feel free to submit your prayer requests to be added to our congregational prayer request list.
Peace and Blessings
