pray-2558490_1280Prayer is one thing every Christian can—and should—always be doing. It doesn’t cost any money, yet we sadly devote little time to it.

Think about the frivolous, unessential, or optional things you devote time to; how does that compare with the following?

“Then He [Jesus] spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,” Luke 18:1

“They [Christians] continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers,” Acts 2:42

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints,” Ephesians 6:18

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving,” Colossians 4:2

“Pray without ceasing,” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

With this in mind, what are you doing Wednesday night?

1 Pet 4-13 LCT41This week’s daily devotional will help you view the opposition you experience because of Christ in light of His return. You’ll also learn the essential aspects and components of biblical prayer. A link to the morning message on “Biblical Mediation” from Joshua 1:8 is also included below, as well as our weekly bulletin.


hands-2168901_1920Christian, what are you doing tomorrow (Wednesday) night? Orwell Bible Church’s prayer meeting is every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.

Think about souls without Christ—we must together pray for their salvation.

Think about the weakness of the church—we must together pray for its protection and strengthening.

Think about the needs and burdens of your fellow church members—we must together pray for their needs.

Think about missionaries who are alone and without Christian fellowship—we must pray for their perseverance and faithfulness.

What are you doing tomorrow night?

1 Pet 1-7 LCT 40The psalmist testified, “I am afflicted very much; revive me, O Lord, according to Your word” (Psalm 119:107). The Lord is sovereign over all creation, and through trials we must seek Him through prayer (“revive me, O Lord”) and the Word (“according to Your word”). Christian, when you are “afflicted very much,” you need to seek the Lord even more, not less!

Here are some tools to help and encourage you in the Word and prayer:

1 Pet 1-7 LCT 40

James 5-7-8 LCT 39
