Prayer Opps

There are plenty of opportunities for prayer: Every challenge in life and every joy in life are opportunities, are potential on-ramps to Encounter God.

"Prayer was never meant to be duty-based, or merely results-oriented.  It is the place of encounter with God."

Isn't that what God wanted originally, someone to walk with Him in the garden?  (and be about His business, be in partnership with Him?)

Loving God is the first commandment (given in our best interests). So a daily devotional time and a day-long devotional life (RELATIONSHIP) is where it starts - having a living, practical relationship with God, being a friend of God.

If you knew God was going to be at your dining room table tomorrow morning and every day at 5:30 a.m., would you meet Him there? (or 10:30pm for night owls).

It starts with personal prayer.  David (Ps. 27:4 one thing I seek...), Mary sat at Jesus' feet, Paul (that I might know Him!), Jesus' own example of drawing away to talk with the Father.

Resources:  The Psalms, The Gospels, Paul's letters; Mike Bickle (Growing in Prayer, The Pleasures of Loving God, After God's Own Heart), Bob Sorge (Secrets of the Secret Place), Dutch Sheets (The Pleasure of His Company), John Eldredge (Walking With God, Moving Mountains, The Sacred Romance), John Piper. 

Praying with somebody.

Praying with your spouse, your children, a coworker, a friend at church, your family. Your church's weekly prayer meeting, other corporate inter-church gatherings. "Wherever two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."

My house shall be called a house of prayer....God is restoring the tabernacle of David.

Our cities - and people - are in great need. Does the church have answers? Does God have answers? He is raising up prayer ministries and prayer networks and city-wide houses of prayer. You are invited to be a part. 

See this list produced by Ralph Egyud from the Meadville, PA area:   for a prayer room or people to contact, if interested. 

For many, mixing music and Scripture have resulted in enjoyable prayer that is sustainable. There are many other prayer networks available.

Tent America / Every Home for Christ (states, nations).

In the fall of 2018, Tent America is coordinating revival tents, worship tents, in every state capital  (sign up to be a part)

On September 27-29, coinciding with the Feast of Tabernacles, we will be hosting 'tent city' gatherings of worship, music, prayer, and gospel proclamation – simultaneously at all 50 state capitals and on college and university campuses across America!

Every Home for Christ: We believe prayer is essential to reaching every home on earth with the Gospel. Every Home for Christ is an international missions organization dedicated to the Great Commission. We believe that Jesus tasked us—His Church—to reach all people in every nation with the Gospel and to disciple them in His ways. Since 1946, Every Home for Christ has remained on a steady committed course toward this vision. In over 130 nations, we are actively equipping the local church to reach the lost with the Gospel and make disciples.
