“Thankfulness for Prayer”
In Matthew 18:19-20 Jesus says, “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there I am also.
I am so thankful for the privilege to pray to God and to know that by praying I am willingly and devotedly communicating with God. He tells us numerous times in the Bible to go to him with our prayers, to retreat to a “quiet place” and share our desires of the heart.
Phillipians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” I say AMEN!!!!
Thanks be to God that at COTHA we have numerous opportunities to pray with and for others. The Prayer Team prays with and for anyone who wishes to receive prayer every Sunday during Communion. In addition, the Intercessory Prayer Team prays over the prayer requests written on the back of the church bulletin. It warms my heart with such pleasure that we DO go to God in prayer and we ARE a PRAYING church!
Prayer is a calling. Scripture is clear that we are all called to pray in all sorts of ways. Our Father wants to communicate with us. Thank You Lord Jesus that You love us and do hear our prayers. What a privilege indeed!
