Saturday Morning Prayer is held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 6:00 a.m.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF SATURDAY MORNING PRAYER?
The purpose of Saturday Morning Prayer, also known as Intercessory Prayer, is for two or more people to come together to intercede on behalf of others; to make their request known unto God; to pray for the community, nation and any concerns/requests that are announced.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 emphasized that supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings (presidents) and all who are in authority. Why? So that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all Godliness and reverence.
Prayer is a very important part of our lives because it is our line of communication with our Father in Heaven and He has instructed us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
WHY DOES SATURDAY MORNING PRAYER START SO EARLY?
The reason Saturday Morning Prayer starts at 6:00 a.m. is because is a quiet, still time to seek the Lord without interruptions or distractions. Additionally, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ prayed early in the morning.
Mark 1:35 35Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Luke 5:16 16But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Genesis 19:27 27Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD.
WHO CAN ATTEND?
Saturday Morning Prayer/Intercessory Prayer is open and available for anyone who desires to attend.
WHAT IF I AM UNABLE TO ATTEND, BUT STILL WANT TO SUBMIT A PRAYER REQUEST?
We prefer individuals to attend in person, because the Word of God states “where there is unity, there is strength.” Additionally, there is so much power in Corporate Prayer, as Deuteronomy 32:30, states that one can put a thousand to flight and two can put ten thousand to flight (Notice the importance of Corporate Prayer)
However, if for some reason someone is unable to attend, prayer request can be placed in the Prayer Box, located in the Foyer, and will be addressed either during Wednesday Evening Prayer or Saturday Morning.
