Last night we began our Prayer Meeting by sharing passages from God’s Word. It was a great time together. We are Baptist’s and that means we have a Wednesday Night “Prayer Meeting”. For many this means we pray for 3 minutes and have a 30 minute Sermon/Devotional/Lesson/Message thing. I appreciate the heart of the people who come out here each week. They really want to pray! I usually read a passage of Scripture to begin our prayer time. Last night the Lord impressed on my heart to simply ask for volunteers to read or share a passage of Scripture that has spoken to their heart recently. I just wanted people to share what God is doing in their lives.
We often have a “Praise Time” during our prayer meeting. This is a time for people to share what God is doing in their lives. Last night was much different. Instead of praising Him for this thing or that thing, we were praising Him through His Word. It was amazing to see how God is working in the lives of His people as they shared portions of God’s Word that He is using in their lives now. It was good.
We His people share praises and answers to prayer it often encourages us to pray more. Last night has encouraged us to be in His Word more. God is working in the midst of His people! What a beautiful thing!
