Coming Together

Praying together as God’s people is incumbent upon us in 2023 as the Body of Christ, His Church! Therefore, Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. is the engine that powers the ministry at Good News!! We need you to join in so that we are firing on all cylinders!!! Personal prayer (closet praying) is of necessity in order for genuine, heartfelt and effective prayer to be expressed corporately. We don’t come together to be seen and heard of men, but to collectively raise our voices in united prayer to be seen and heard of God as a body of believers. The church cannot afford to have one or the other, but can only operate properly as both are smoothly functioning (Matthew 6:5-15; 1 Timothy 2:1-8). Joint prayer will issue forth into joint praise to our great God of whom is infinitely worthy (2 Corinthians 1:11)!!!!

The early believers who would form the church prayed together in preparation for Pentecost, when the Spirit of God filled and began His baptizing work (Acts 1:14-15). You will notice in that passage that it was not just a few but the whole band of 120. The early church came together in prayer when persecuted for preaching Christ, and had newfound boldness to continue in the face of opposition (Acts 4:23-31). The early church lifted up their collective voices upon Peter’s imprisonment and pending execution. God intervened in sending the leader of His “Angelic Special Forces Battalion” on “Operation Rhoda”. Thus, releasing Peter, but greater still, strengthening the faith of Rhoda and the believers who were together at prayer meeting to witness the event and answer to their prayers (Acts 12:5-17).

Will you make this a year of earnest prayer with a devotion to a united front in prayer for the advancement of Christ’s cause?

Romans 15:30–33 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; 31 That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; 32 That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed. 33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
