We are drawn together by prayer. COVID has had many positive effects on myself and the members of our community. As we gather to pray our hearts have become united to pursue God on behalf of our family, friends, local community, state, and nation.
Our love of God and the grace given for salvation through Jesus Christ has allowed us to “bear each others burden” with purposeful intent on seeing God work in the lives of those we bring to Him.
The pattern of Daniel praying three times a day was the initial inspiration for this gathering but it has expanded into a memorial time, set aside to be grateful for the one who gave us the privilege to enter the presence of the Lord God our creator.
Daniel purposed to spend three times a day in prayer as a meaningful part of his daily prayer system. Understanding that “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right“. 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT It seemed good to use this as an example for our prayer system as well.
Our noon day time also includes a devotional focus on praying scripture. We are currently working through Psalms 119 seeing how the Psalmist gave their cares, worries, fears and questions to the eternal, never changing creator of heaven and earth and all that there is.
