“We certainly shouldn’t try to impress others with our prayers, but we always involve them in our prayers. Why? Because we’re family. God is not just my Father, ‘Our Father.’ These two words remind us that we’re both children of God and siblings to each other. Prayer was never meant to be a merely personal exercise with personal benefits, but a discipline that reminds us how we’re personally responsible for others”

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer, 41.

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

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer, 39.

“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.”
