Prayer Opportunities!

Posted on May 28, 2015

In a recent Sunday gospel, Jesus said: “I am the true vine. You are the branches. Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.” John 15:1, 4-5;
We want to be a church (gathering of believers who trust Jesus in all) that is well known for its powerful prayer. In history, significant seasons of prayer accompanied by a significant return to being regularly (almost daily) in the Word of God in Scripture and repentance oftentimes precede growth or renewal. Prayer is evidence of faith and trust in Jesus in a person’s life. Christianity is having an alive relationship with Jesus; prayer is the conversation.
We are grateful to all those who participate in our Hope prayer chain (led by Kathy Longstreet now for several years), “praying” earnestly to our living God, Father Son and Holy Spirit on behalf of others. Sign up on the Hope website (www.hopelutheran.net) if you are not a part of the Hope prayer chain.
Here are some other prayer opportunities. All are welcome to any of these opportunities:
Friday evenings, 10 to midnight at Hope, weekly: A group of about ten people from several churches gather for prayer as led by Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Tuesday mornings, 8 am, Cedar Hill Transformation Prayer network: We pray for businesses, schools, and civic entities (police, fire, government, economic development leadership) in Cedar Hill. Pastor Edsel sends out a weekly text on location. Anyone is welcome.
Thursdays, noon, North American Lutheran Church Prayer network (conference call): I will give you the call in info if you desire to participate. We pray for the North American Lutheran Church, its leaders, relationships, missionaries and individual needs around the world.
First Thursday, 7:30AM, every other month, Cedar Hill Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast (February, April, June, August, October, December), Cedar Hill Recreation Center: Under Mayor Rob Franke’s leadership, various people lead in prayer for the Cedar Hill community.
