For centuries the prayer meeting has been a central part of church life, an indispensable part of the weekly program. Yet today few churches have a prayer meeting. What was once a major emphasis of church activity has either been relegated to the sidelines and ignored by most members, or it has been disposed of altogether. Furthermore many prayer meetings today involve little prayer. Even in meetings set aside for prayer, other activities typically crowd in and leave little time for adoration, confession, intercession and thanksgiving to the Lord. A hunger for God's Word and a desire to pray are some of the first evidences of the new birth. The more of God's Word we study the more we should be driven to pray. The more we pray the greater our compulsion to share the Gospel with those around us. This is what the early church experienced. As they sought God in intensive, heartfelt prayer, they were fitted with the Holy Spirit. Then they went out and proclaimed God's Word boldly! Here at Firehouse, we meet corporately every Saturday morning @ 9:00 AM in the church office to pray. It is a time of seeking divine direction for our families, church, communities and country. Come and see what God is doing.
