From the very beginning of the church, Christians have gathered to pray (Acts 4:24; 12:5; 21:5). Prayer meetings are valuable for the church as a whole and for the individuals who participate. Through our prayers, we are demonstrating and validating the faith we have in Jesus. In prayer we are to align our lives with God’s purpose leaving our desires behind and when it’s all about God and his divine will we can have confidence that our prayers will be answered.
More than anything else, prayer meetings bring about change. Praying with one another, believers can witness God produce miracles and change hearts.
