Jesus said, "I will build my church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it."
In order to be on track with what the Father is doing, and how Jesus is building His church, for His will to be done, and for His kingdom to come, we need to pray.

In many if not most churches there is an imbalance between the sexes in prayer. I often look around the group at a prayer meeting and see that women outnumber men by about 5 to 1. In a group of 12 people there may be ten women and two men. What's up with these guys? The prayer part is the exciting part where you get to entreat God for a move of His spirit - to get your marching orders so that you can do exploits. David, before going out and stabbing, slashing, maiming and wounding - you know, the "real" man stuff - would seek God's counsel and instruction. Waiting on the Lord. Even when the women and children had all been kidnapped, he prayed first before setting out to rescue them. (It wasn't because they were of little value in the eyes of men in those days. That was never the case, actually). God gave him the plans and then he went and routed the enemy.

We keep trying with prayer. Thursday mornings, Sunday evening.... when is the best time? We decided to go back to a time when we will pray regularly, and hope that those who can will join us. Consistency is something important with the God of the universe, who Himself does not change like shifting sand. Thursday mornings it is then. Yes, we do pray at other times. At home, and without ceasing, but we need corporate prayer too. Those who are invested in the work and the vision, at least to the point where they will help to hold up our arms. If you can, come and join us for an hour or two in the presence of God. It's always a little different when we are pursuing His agenda and His Word. There's worship, seeking, talking and listening. The rest is up to Him.
