Ten Prayer Values

What we believe, and how we behave:
We value prayer; therefore, we will feature prayer in our worship and make prayer a central element of all ministry.

We are a praying people; therefore, we will nurture at-home daily prayer, family prayer, husband-wife, parent-child prayer connections, providing resources, training and nudging new and old Christians to deepen their prayer lives.

We believe that we are a kingdom of priests and that prayer and worship is our highest calling, and that as priests, we are not only recipients of blessing, but the conveyors of blessing; therefore, in prayer, we commit to pray for the favor and blessing of God upon others; for protective care, upon our pastor, the church staff, the church family, our city and our nation. We bless, we do not curse. We ask God not for what we deserve, but for blessing – for continued grace and mercy!

We value holiness and righteousness as the mark of God upon a people, and we recognize that the church desperately needs revival and our nation needs a great awakening; therefore, we regularly and consistently cry out to God for revival in the church and a great awakening for our nation.

We believe in the power of petition, that God answers when people pray rightly; therefore, we faithfully take the needs of the church, one another, the city and the world before the throne of God and ask for grace! We provide a means whereby requests for prayer are taken seriously and held up in prayer persistently, beseeching God expectantly for an answer.

We believe in the power of God through intercession; therefore, we identify, train, team and mobilize intercessors for the under-girding of the ministries of the Church, and for the support of the various mission endeavors of the congregation.

We believe that prayer is essential to the success of every endeavor, that without Him we can do nothing, and whatever we do in His behalf without dependence upon Him is less than it might have been, given dependence in prayer; therefore, our rule is no one works unless someone prays!

We believe that the reception of the gospel unto salvation is a spiritual issue; therefore, we pray for the harvest, that blind eyes will be open to the gospel, ears will be enabled to hear and receive the truth of Christ, hearts may be receptive to the good news that goes forth in power out of prayer.

We believe that there is a definitive connection between prayer and the harvest; therefore, we insist that prayer must have a missional dimension, that we must pray for lost loved ones, for the unreached in our city and the world.

We believe, “God governs the world by the prayers of His people;” therefore, we pray for our city, state and national leaders. We pray about world conditions and various global crises. We invite God’s intervening reign. We pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.”
