“The Cinderella of the church of today is the prayer meeting” (Leonard Ravenhill)
“The prayer meeting, if she exists at all, is relegated to a dark corner somewhere in the church on an off-night so that there is little expectation that anyone will pay her any attention. She goes about unnoticed, unloved and uncelebrated, yet she is the one who keeps the house clean.
“It’s time for Cinderella to go to the ball—to get dressed for our King and seek His face for grace and mercy, to intercede on behalf of our nation. We must respond with humility and repent of our sins. We must be grateful and thankful because we are blessed beyond measure.” (Shane Idleman)
Prayer should be the heartbeat of the Church. It can’t just be a short prayer that opens or closes the service. While many churches are still closed due to COVID 19, it’s the perfect time to focus on prayer. Jesus said, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matt 18:20 NIV).
Gather with a small group in your home just like they did in New Testament times. Focus on prayer and worship. Cry out to God to send revival to our churches, to the nation and to the world.
