Are you a Prayer Warrior?
Do you believe in the power of prayer? I know many of us pray on a regular – in fact often – basis. Our times and methods may vary but we pray.
Upon becoming a deacon in this church, I reviewed the description of the duties of a deacon, and in particular, those of the Evangelism Committee. There was reference to a group sponsored by this committee who met regularly to pray for individuals and needs of our church and the community. They were called Prayer Warriors. I was reminded of this group by one of Rev. Lara’s recent sermons on Matthew 18:20 – “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
Unfortunately, my research revealed that this group disbanded when the core members moved away from this area a few years ago. My last church in Ohio had a similar group; they functioned as a prayer chain via telephone alerts.
The Evangelism Committee would like to offer an opportunity to all to reestablish this group(s). Please contact me at 704-431-4949 or Christine Mowery at 704-636-1321 if you are interested. The group could meet in-person (with social distancing protocol for now) or a phone chain could be established. I’d like to offer a suggestion, a hook if you will. I think in-person would be a more powerful experience, as scripture suggests, and then afterwards the group could engage in lunch or other meal or other activity to build community and camaraderie. Please pray on this and see how you are led.
Chair, Evangelism Committee
