Throughout church history, God’s people have gathered for corporate prayer. In fact, many of the greatest revivals started as believers joined together in community prayer meetings. In the early church, believers met often – sometimes daily – for prayer and worship. In our present culture of busyness, we have lost a bit of the urgency of corporate prayer meetings. Our ability to use the internet effectively has certainly grown our audiences and brought some remarkable benefits to the church. However, we must remember that gathering for corporate prayer is essential to our spiritual journey.

The Psalmist wrote, “Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:3). The element of being together in prayer is what’s important.

Corporate prayer times may include common prayers such as “the Lord’s prayer” (Matthew 6:9-13). Everyone might recite the words together. Or, it might be as simple as believers gathering for prayer and praying in one accord around common themes. As the leader suggests various topics, the participants pray together for those suggested topics. Corporate prayer meetings can take place in a small group of friends gathering to pray together for the strengthening of their marriages or in a small group of parents who gather regularly to pray for their kids. The important element of corporate prayer is that it is praying together.

Prayer is spiritual communication between man and God, a two-way relationship in which man should not only talk to God but also listen to Him. Prayer to God is like a child’s conversation with his father. It is natural for a child to ask his father for the things he needs. There are many promises in God’s Word to encourage us to pray, such as: “He shall call upon me and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him” (Psalm 91:15); “And it shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear” (Isaiah 65:24); “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). The Scriptures tell us that we are to pray for one another and also assure us that God hears and answers prayer.

When you receive Christ into your heart, you become a child of God and have the privilege of talking to Him in prayer at any time about anything. The Christian life is a personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ. And best of all, it is a relationship that will last for all eternity.

Please join us in our corporate prayer opportunity as we position ourselves to collectively make a difference in the Kingdom & Ministry. If you are unable to join is in person and your location and schedule permits, you are invited to pray at your location during the established prayer time.
