Wednesday Night Prayer Service
Wednesday, Sep 23, 2020
Starting August 24 we will begin a journey to "Pray with One Accord." As the church, we desire to be a unified body of Christ-followers in both heart and in mind. That is what is means to pray "with one accord." Prayer changes things. This season, no matter how you're joining us, we want to pursue harmony through our prayers to the Father. Join us as we pray through the following topics for the next five weeks. God hears our prayers. God answers our prayers. We wait in hopeful expectation for God to move in big ways.
Each week we gather at 7 p.m. for a time to connect with God and be refreshed and renewed through passionate worship, powerful intercession, answered prayers and an unexplainable sense of God's presence.
Each Wednesday we gather together for a special time of worship and intercession. In Acts you will see that the early Church was constantly gathering together and devoting themselves to prayer, and we are following their lead. You can expect that we will press into a certain topic each week, such as children, marriage, healing, revival, Houston becoming a city of God, and so many more things.
This is a space for you to come and rest at the feet of Jesus. Whatever season of life you are walking through, our prayer service is where you will get a chance to re-focus your heart and mind on Christ.
Additionally, if you are seeking to receive prayer with one of our elders, there is an opportunity for prayer with an Elder starting at 6:30 p.m. at the front of the room. They would love to pray with you, whether you have a specific need or not.
The service begins at 7:00 p.m. and typically ends no later than 8:15 p.m. Children’s programming is available for children of all ages. See the tab labeled “children’s programming” for more information.

We ask. We do not command. "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened." -Matthew 7:7-8
We call. "Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known."-Jeremiah 33:3 "And the Lord came and stood, calling as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, Speak, for your servant hears." - 1 Samuel 3:10
Lay our requests before the Lord. "O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch." -Psalm 5:3
In solitude. "And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed." -Mark 1:35
In community. "And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers."-Acts 2:42
In the Spirit. "Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication."-Eph 6:18. "Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words." -Romans 8:26
In humility. "Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the Lord." -2 Chron. 34:27
We pray in faith. "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." -Heb. 11:1 "For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty and lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you, and you will pay your vows." -Job 22:26-27
Laying on of hands. "Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." -James 5:14
Jesus modeled it. "But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray." -Luke 5:16
Out of obedience. "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer." -Romans 12:12. "Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving." -Col 4:2
To behold the beauty of the Lord. "One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple." -Ps 27:4
To be filled with the Holy Spirit. "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." -Romans 15:15
To allow God’s peace to guard our heart and mind.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." -Phil. 4:6-7
To guard against temptation. "Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." -Matt. 26:41
To know the thoughts of God. "But, as it is written,“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God." -1 Corin 2:9-12
Continually. "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." -1 Thess. 5:16-18
