On Wednesday, February 26th we gathered at the church to begin a prayer that was to continue until Sunday, April 12th . . . Easter Sunday morning! Hundreds of prayer needs, requests and praises were posted on the walls of the church, these were lifted up to God every day by members of the church who believe in the power of prayer.
Little did we know how much things were about to change, for each of us and for the entire world! We believe God was calling us in advance to learn to pray to Him for help with our problems, and to pray for one another in the days ahead. Those prayer notes are still attached to the walls of the SLCC worship center. We have made prayer a part of everyday life, and now we have more to pray about than ever! We know that God listens to each and every prayer, and that He cherishes our prayers.
"I have heard your prayers . . . when I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place." 2 Chronicles 7:13-15
In other words:
Humble yourself . . .
Seek God's face in prayer
Turn from the evil in your life
Ask God to forgive you
Then God promises . . .
He will hear our prayers
He will forgive our sins and,
He will heal our land!
If you have a prayer need, or apraise,
please share it with us so that we can put your prayer(s)
on the walls of South Louisville Christian Church.
