“As Mark Dever says, ‘It is impossible to answer the question “What is a Christian?” without ending up in a conversation about the church–as least, in the Bible, it is.’ If prayer clings to to the hope we have in Christ, then prayer should reflect our togetherness in Christ. If prayer has a gospel shape, then by implication, it must have a church shape.”

John OnwuchekwaPrayer, 37.

“…a church’s commitment to prayer is one of the greatest determiners of its effectiveness in ministry.

Prayer is oxygen for the Christian. It sustains us. So it follows that prayer must be a source of life for any community of Christians. It is to the church what it is to individuals–breathing. Yet many of our gatherings could be likened to people coming together merely to hold their collective breath. This would explain why people seem to have so little energy for actually living out the Christian life.

But breathing together is what our churches need.”

John OnwuchekwaPrayer23.

Heavenly Father,

Hallowed be your great and powerful name. Only you are completely holy and pure and perfect.  Someday, everyone will know this. It seems like every year, you get pushed more and more out of lives and society. More and more people in America do not acknowledge your existence and glory.  In 2019, please send revival to your people. Cleanse and forgive us for ignoring and judging our neighbors who need Jesus. Forgive us for our lack of prayer and our lack of love for you and others. Forgive us for watering down your ternal Word. Make us hungry and desperate for you in this New Year!

In Jesus precious name!

Amen
