What is Prayer?
We believe that the model for the church and it's activities is found in Acts 2;42
Ac 2:42* And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
One of the primary activities of the early church, and we believe for the church today, is that of prayer, talking to God. The early church, as seen here in this verse continued steadfastly in prayers. And, as you read through the Book of Acts, you see this also. The letters in the rest of the NT teach on this and encourage us to pray as well.
Thus, we try to pray here at Calvary Chapel. We pray during our services, and we pray in our home fellowships, and we pray in our Sunday School classes for the children, and we have small teams that pray before and during our Sunday morning services.
Additionally, each week, we make up what we call "Prayer Points", which are 5-8 things to pray for taken from the Sunday morning service.
You will find an example of this at the bottom of the page. The Bible teaches us to pray according to the will of God. So, these prayer points flow right out of the Bible, that portion that was taught on a Sunday morning, and then we pray for these things throughout the following week.
It's very encouraging to know that we are praying according to the will of God, and it's an incredible blessing to see the Lord so faithfully answer prayer.
Additionally, we have a prayer team that receives prayer requests that are given from our body on Sunday and Wed, and then sent out to over the internet to a group of prayer ministers from our church. So, lots of prayer taking place, and we thank God for leading us to pray, and that He is hearing and answering our prayers
