3 Reasons to Attend a Night of Worship and Prayer
Evangel Worship is hosting a "Night of Worship and Prayer" on Friday, March 4, at 7PM. These nights are powerful and set the pace for our church. Maybe you're on the fence about attending a worship night event. Here are 3 reasons why you should attend a night of worship:
1. Extended time to worship, listen, and respond.
In a "normal" weekly worship gathering at Evangel, we have a very unique problem. With the service times being what they are, and the multiple services coming back to back, we don't get a lot of time to spend extended moments in worship. The worship in our services is refreshing and powerful, but sometimes I wish there was a little more space to breathe, let the Holy Spirit speak, and respond. That's exactly the reason we have the Night of Worship and Prayer--to seek the face of the Lord, to listen to what He's speaking to us, and let His Spirit direct our steps.
2. Intentional, set apart time to seek God.
Proverbs 8:17 says "...those who diligently seek me will find me. "
Sometimes, you just have to spend intentional, focused time worshiping and praying to refocus your mind and heart on the things that really matter, to gain a clearer perspective, or to hear a word from God that can literally change your life.
3. Time to pray for our community, our church, and our loved ones.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says "...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
If there's ever been a time to seek the Lord on behalf of our community, our church, and our loved ones, it's now! When we gather to worship and pray we lift up the name of Jesus over every situation, concern, relationship, and issue that we face. We ask Jesus to do the impossible in our lives and families, we spend time praying for healing and restoration, we declare the victory of Jesus over our community, and our lives, and above it all we exalt the name of Jesus.
Our Nights of Worship and Prayer are some of the most uniquely powerful nights of ministry as we take a little more time, linger a little longer, rest in His presence a bit more, and declare His victory over our lives. Please make plans to attend our next Night of Worship and Prayer on Friday, March 4, at 7PM at Evangel.
