Prayer


Ian Murray once said that “Calvinism is simply Christianity on its knees.”  When most think of Calvinism what comes to mind are theological debates and tomes in Latin or Old English.  But Murray’s statement reminds us that what we believe about God impacts the way we live before God.  Because we believe in a holy God who is absolutely sovereign over every affair of our lives and the entire universe, we are humbled.  Realizing our weakness, we are moved to call on Him who is our refuge and strength.

We count prayer among the highest privileges of being children of God.  One thing that you will notice about our worship services is that we pray several times of varying length.  The frequency of our prayers is more than what many are accustomed today in which worship is often more about “affirming me” than honoring God.  When we come before our great God through Jesus Christ by the grace of the Holy Spirit to worship, we feel our inadequacy to offer Him acceptable worship.  This leads us to call on Him.  And He is faithful.  God graciously fills our corporate worship with His awesome presence as He inhabits the praises of His people.

Prayer is a vital component in our Covenant Groups, whose atmosphere lends itself to person-specific, God-honoring prayer. Our ceaseless prayers are also a part of the regular Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies. If you are in need of prayer, please share that with us so that we can pray with and for you and together see God’s handiwork in your life as He works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
