Upper Room Bible Church
We as a church have committed to be a praying church! We see through out scripture the importance of prayer not only as individual believers but also when you pray as a group with other believers in Christ.
Group prayer knits believers together and encourages the burdened. When a group of believers pray together, the result is unity, humility, thanksgiving, confession of sin, intercession, and discovery of God’s will.
Group prayer among Christians is important and rewarding. It has been this way from the beginning of the church. In Acts 2, when the disciples by the power of the Holy Spirit were preaching and thousands were being saved, the church had a plan, and they carried it out in community. “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42, NASB). Group prayer was important in the early church as something that bound them together as they carried out the Great Commission.
All in all we as a church believe that God has sovereignly ordained the corporate praying of a church, such that His mighty workings increase exponentially and His purposes are accelerated when we pray together. Understand that this message is not given to minimize personal prayer. Instead, it is to show you that personal prayer alone will not result in the working of God to the degree needed for spiritual transformation in our lives, our church, our cities, and our nation.
Please join us every Wednesday for a time of prayer. This will take place at the home of David & Marilyn Addington at 6:30pm.
If you would like for us to pray for you please submit your request or praise report to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like your request to remain private please let us know otherwise we will add it to the prayer chain and will also pray for you at church on a Sunday morning.
May you be encouraged and blessed as we pray for one another!
