Worship, Prayer, and Obedience

Worship:
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. - Psalm 8:2

Prayer:
He said to them, “When you pray, say: “'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come...'” - Luke 11:2

Obedience:
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. - 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” - Luke 4:18-19

Our purpose as Christians is to glorify God. We do so by making ourselves available to God and seeking how he would use us in the fulfillment of his plan. As we do this, the Lord gives different gifts and callings to various parts of his body.

The Lord has placed Kingdom Life in an area that is blessed with a great diversity and depth of Godly fellowships. It is here that Kingdom Life has been called to be a house of prayer. God's purpose for our church is four fold:

  1. Through prayer, we see the power of God's Kingdom brought to change lives for Christ
    • And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: “'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations'?... - Mark 11:17a
    • The prayer of a righteous main is powerful and effective. - James 5:16b
  2. Through prayer, we grow in our relationship with Jesus
    • Come near to God and he will come near to you. - James 4:8a
  3. Through prayer, we are empowered to bring the salvation message to the lost
    • Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” - Matthew 9:37-38
  4. Through prayer, we help bring hope to those disconnected from the body of Christ
    • I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, - Ephesians 1:17-19
