Prayer Meeting

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV).

A couple of months ago, the Contact Church started to hold prayer meetings on Wednesday evenings. Although I have not been able to attend each evening, I have benefited every time I have been able to make it.

Sometimes I need a quiet time with others. I need to be reminded of the goodness of God. I need to hear the praise and concerns of others in the family of God. It is a refreshing time to gain some new insights, some encouragement, and some strength. It's a time to talk to God on behalf of others, even when my words are inaudible. I'm certainly thankful that God is willing to listen and answer when we speak to him.

group prayer is something that must be recovered. I find that it is easy to "go it alone" in prayer. There is something about being with others, hearing their concerns and crys from the heart.

Aluguel,
Thanks for reading my blog! It's nice to have a reader from Brazil. I would like to read your blog, but unfortunately I don't read Portugese. Yesterday, Mork from Australia left a comment. It's good to interact with you guys in the southern hemisphere. I'm honored that you are reading my blog.

Mike,
You are absolutely right! It is a special time together. Thanks for the comment!
