I just read an article which I will give the link to at the end of this post stating why prayer meetings don’t work. We have more resources at our fingertips for prayer, Bible study, and anything else related to Christian growth, yet we are more spiritually anemic than ever.
I was amazed to read the story of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and read about the priority of prayer in every aspect of what they do. It’s amazing! I remember leading the first congregation I pastored into a prayer walk. I had walked the building for several days leading up to the meeting and posted specific prayer requests by the door of each room. I did not announce it but went into a brief message on prayer. Then I invited those who wanted to walk the 2 floors of the building to do so and others to remain in the sanctuary while a trusted deacon who now is a pastor in that area led that group without warning. I firmly believe that God moved in that prayer walk because the onslaught of the enemy followed just weeks later.
The only way for us to ever become powerful in prayer is to actually do it. The book of James says, “We don’t have because we don’t ask.” Someone also once said, “Little prayer, little power; much prayer, much power.”
I now invite you to read the article below. I trust you will find it as informative and challenging as I did.
