“Here’s our problem: prayerlessness is spiritual suicide!” 

John OnwuchekwaPrayer39.

“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.”
