Prayer is the powerhouse of the church. It always has been and always will be. When people pray - things happen!
We must take seriously the call to engage in corporate prayer and to pray for one another. In the Bible we often find the first Christians praying together, crying out to God. And when they prayed in unity and with passion, remarkable things happened (Acts 1:14, 4:24 and 12:5).
GEAR promotes and resources prayer through...
- Prayer Network - a nationwide community of intercessors
- Power Points - a prayer guide distributed with the In GEAR magazine.
Richard Turnbull co-ordinates GEAR's prayer communication, including the Prayer Network.
The prayer network enables intercessors to seek revelation and guidance and to wrestle in prayer for GEAR and for the URC.
A Call to Prayer
We love to encourage all to join in prayer for the United Reformed church to seek 'what the Spirit is saying to the churches', especially to follow the Moderators theme for the next two years of 'People of the Way - living the life of Jesus today'. From time to time there will be special events advertised through GEAR magazine, PowerPoints and Prayer Network emails and elsewhere. The Evangelism and Renewal Advocates may be involved in organising these events and details may be found under the ERA menu.
