When God’s People Pray – Part 2
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42 NIV)
So it was on a Tuesday night that I told the people, “This is going to be the barometer of our church. This is going to be the engine that will drive it. We’re going to call and see what God will do. We’re going to pray and wait upon him for that outpouring of the Holy Spirit that we so desperately need, so that we can preach the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit to see lives changed, that God’s name might be glorified.” And this is how it all began.
That was many years ago, but we still consider our Tuesday Night Prayer Meeting to be the most important service of the week at our church. God has said in his Word, "Call to me, and I will answer you…" (Jeremiah 33:3); and we firmly believe that this Word still holds true today. It is for this reason that thousands of people gather each Tuesday evening to seek the Lord and to intercede for others, including those who send us prayer requests from all over the world. (Please feel free to share your prayer requests with us at www.brooklyntabernacle.org/prayer .)
If you’re believing God for a miracle in your life or in the life of your church, keep on praying and never give up! God is faithful, and he is true to his Word!
