“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” -Colossians 4:2
One of the most significant ways we can encourage each other in Christ is by crying out together to our Heavenly Father. Through the finished work of our Savior and the powerful working of the Holy Spirit we have continual access to our “Abba” (Romans 8). That thought alone should move us to worshipful, thanksgiving-filled prayer!
Currently, we have NHCC Elders and Lay Counselors up front after each service ready to listen to you and pray with you.
Other opportunities for joining others at NHCC in prayer:
Greater Works Prayer Meeting: every Saturday at 6:30 pm (Book Resource Center)
Intercessory Prayer Meeting: every Sunday (Room 105 on the Life Ed. hallway)
Missions Prayer Meeting: every 4th Wednesday at 7:00 pm (Room 104)
“When the tide comes in: I cannot insist too strongly on my own helplessness among these people apart from the grace of God. Although I have been now ten years in China and have had considerable experience with both Chinese and Lisu, I find myself able to do little or nothing apart from God’s going before me and working among men. Without this I feel like a man who has his boat grounded in shallow water. Pull or push as he may, he will not be able to make his boat move more than a few inches. But let the tide come in and lift his boat off the bottom – then he will be able to move it as far as he pleases, quite easily and without friction. It is indeed necessary for me to go around among our Lisu preaching, teaching, exhorting, rebuking, but the amount of progress made thereby depends almost entirely on the state of the ‘spiritual tide’ in the village – a condition which you can control upon your knees as well as I can.”
James O. Fraser, The Prayer of Faith.
