WHAT IS A PRAYER MEETING?


A prayer meeting is a weekly informal gathering to give praise, thanks, honor, and love to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. It is a time in which to praise God as the Holy Spirit moves us.

“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our Salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.” 
(Psalm 95:1-2)

 ~~~~~~

A prayer meeting is not a discussion club, 
a therapy session, or a time of counseling. 
We come to give our full attention to Jesus 
through the help of the Holy Spirit.

“For where two or three are gathered 
together in My name, there am I in the 
midst of them.”
(Matthew 18:20)

  ~~~~~~

A prayer meeting has two purposes: 
to praise, worship and honor God; and to 
build up the body of Christ as brothers and sisters.

“So we, though many, are one body 
in Christ and individually parts of one 
another.”
(Romans 12:5)

                      ~~~~~~

A prayer meeting consists of opening prayer,
praise and worship in song, Scripture reading, 
teaching, testimony, sharing and interceding. 

“First of all, then, I ask that supplications, 
prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be 
offered for everyone.”
(1 Timothy 2:1)

 ~~~~~~

A prayer meeting does not force anyone 
to speak unless moved to do so by the 
Holy Spirit.

“For I, Myself, shall give you wisdom in 
speaking.”
(Luke 21:5)

 ~~~~~~

A prayer meeting is an opportunity to grow 
in the experience of the different types 
of “spiritual gifts”: wisdom, knowledge, 
discernment, prayer tongues, prophecy,
 interpretation of prophecy, healing; 
and a “release” of the power of the Holy Spirit 
which was conferred on us at Baptism and 
Confirmation.

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts 
but the same Spirit… to each individual 
the manifestation of the Spirit is given 
for some benefit.”
(1 Cor. 12:4-11)



We encourage you to experience it for yourself!!
