Is Corporate Prayer on Your Disciple-Making Radar?

What does prayer look like in your church service?

.

Every congregation needs three essential gatherings – one for worship, one for teaching and training (discipleship), and one in which the congregation meets God in corporate prayer. These are not exclusive one of the other. As the church gathers for prayer, there should be at the heart of the meeting, a worshipful disposition. The corporate worship experience should be structured to include significant congregational prayer moments. Yet neither, the church gathered to worship and hear the Word nor the church gathered to pray the Word, can replace the other. The act of praying together is itself a form of discipleship. We learn to pray by praying.

.

The discipleship-training-teaching effort of the church should include a prayer training component, in which, a deeper understating of prayer is cultivated, and again, neither can replace the other. The central spiritual discipline that enlightens us is prayer – over an open Bible. Without prayer, discipleship fails. Since, without the discipline of daily time with God, as well as regular moments in which the congregation pauses to meet with God corporately, we testify to independence and self-sufficiency, the opposite of the spirit of one under discipline.

DiscipleMaking

Paul’s Model of Disciple Making

by Claude King

The Apostle Paul set a wonderful and powerful example for us on how to make disciples of others. He lived his life in such a way that people could see a living demonstration of the Holy Spirit's power to transform a life. Then he encouraged people to follow his example as he followed Christ's example. When the church at Thessalonica followed Paul's and Christ's example like that, they had an impact on a significant portion of the Mediterranean world. Join me in seeking to follow Paul's model as we pursue Christlikeness. See his example in 1 Corinthians 2:4-5; 1 Corinthians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Ephesians 5:1; and 1 Thessalonians 1:6-7.
