My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations. Mark 11.17
Prayer is always the preface to blessing. It goes before the blessing as the blessing's shadow. Charles H. Spurgeon
Joining with the Alliance family for 40 Days of Prayer, May 2 to June 10, 2013.
Prayer, the preface to blessing. As the Marriage Course drew to a close on Tuesday evening, Martin and Charlotte, the lead couple, spoke about the reality of divorce. We must be wise and vigilant in our present culture. Yet the 8 couples who completed the course were grateful for all that they had experienced and hopeful for their marriages.
The new course begins on Tuesday evening, May 28. Presently there are 4 couples signed up but we're hoping for more. The local Catholic church contacted us because they want to learn how to lead this course and are planning to send some couples. We're excited about helping another congregation strengthen marriages.
Prayer, the preface to blessing. Wednesday evening, our prayer meeting was small in number. One might think that we have a large response to our meetings since we are seeking to build a house of prayer but such is not the case. Undaunted, the 4 of us gathered for prayer brought to God many concerns. At one point, as we prayed for the upcoming offering on June 2 for our building purchase, we passed the offering sack. Rather than for money, it was for prayer as we dedicated this special offering to the Lord.
Over the last month, teaching has been offered on giving on Sunday morning and in a weekly letter. The men's group is reading a book by Randy Alcorn, The Treasure Principle. Our prayer is that the Lord will help us to learn biblical principles of stewardship and teach us to have kingdom hearts, generous like our God.
Prayer, the preface to blessing. Thursday evening, our preachers' group met for their monthly meeting. As we talked about the importance of clearly stating our purpose, we also established that this summer our overall theme will be the Person of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. Although there will be different speakers, every Sunday the message will focus on Jesus, His Person, His teaching, His miracles. It's all part of an effort to not only keep our eyes on the Center of our faith but also give our friends an opportunity to attend the service and stay after for a meal in the park. After all, our faith is all about Jesus.
Short prayers are long enough. Charles H. Spurgeon

The Alliance believes wholeheartedly in the power and necessity of prayer. We cannot “Live the Call Together” unless prayer is central to all we do—in our denomination, in our churches, and in our individual lives.
You can help build Christ’s Church around the world by donating online to the Great Commission Fund. This central funding vehicle allows our international workers to focus on ministry rather than raising financial support.
Is God calling you to full-time service? Do you want to participate in a short-term missions trip and experience missions work firsthand? We’re here to help you connect your passion with God’s purpose.
