A church that prays together …

Matthew and I took a two hour shift from 9-11pm on Friday.  Arriving we found Roger and Annette engaged in earnest prayer.  We left when Bryan arrived, guitar in hand, ready to praise Jesus and pray for you and your families.

I looked at the schedule of faithful pray-ers covering solid prayer from 7pm Friday evening until 10am Sunday morning and I was thankful.  You have heard it said, ‘The family that prays together stays together.’  I’m sure this is true of church families, too.

I was humbled to think of the sacrifice made by dozens of St. George’ites, praying into the wee hours for people they had never met.

I was thankful to serve a church where we believe that God still acts.

I am excited to hear reports of friends and family members changing their minds, repenting, and following Jesus.

Over the next few days, we will gather together the notes you wrote in the prayer chapel.  These will be posted on our website.  Would you take a moment to comment here on this blog, sharing your experiences in prayer from this past weekend?

    I had the 11am-1pm shift, Friday night. I found that the time flew by. It was amazing to enter into the stream of prayer that would be flowing all weekend. I was reminded of Matthew 9:37-38, “Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.'” Firstly, that we are the laborers in the harvest fields and that we need to be proactively walking in this role, and secondly, that it is HIS harvest. God is ultimately in control of the harvest and we are called to just bring in the harvest that He has already sown.
    Father, send us out into Your harvest field. Sow life into the hearts of the lost.

    Brian, I don’t know why I came to this site tonight, but I loved the idea of the Pentecostal prayer vigil when your mom told me and I love to hear you speak of the “flow of prayer”, and the scripture you quote “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few . . . ” that God is speaking to my concerns about our situation here in Norwich – Thank you, Brian. God has used you to speak to me! Thank you Ray David and Bryan for your love of God! My heart is full!

    I felt blessed to able to take part. The calm and peace of the middle of the night was the perfect setting to read scripture and pray for those known and unknown. The power of the Holy Spirit was evident in the Chapel and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
