The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

A House Of Prayer

“For my house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.” Isaiah 56:7, Mark 11:17 (NASB)
For some, the church building is a house of fellowship or a house of entertainment or a house of boredom. To think of it as “a house of prayer” implies that we will be active worshipers in it. We will pray for the growth of God’s kingdom and for the health of our own congregation. If our church building is truly “a house of prayer,” we will not want to bring into it any attitudes that hinder prayer. Excessive pride, jealousy, anger, thoughts of revenge — all these must be banished from our minds. If our church building is to be “a house of prayer,” we will undergird with prayer every activity that takes place in it: the preaching, the music, the Lord’s Supper, and all other areas of church life.

  1. Amen!!! How little emphasis we put on prayer, just going through the motions, doing church this way because that’s the way we’ve always done it. God wants to lead His church but without humble prayer we don’t hear. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you for your like of my post, 021615 – When I Don’t Know What To Do
