“For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” (Isaiah 56:7)
Prayer and the Holy Spirit are essentially the power of the Church. If the Holy Spirit and prayer are not present, is it very possible that a church is running solely on the power of man. In the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus recognized that the temple had become something other than what God intended when He says, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’” Sadly, this is happening in the twenty-first century Church as well.
Abide Christian Fellowship is committed to relying on the Holy Spirit’s power, accessible to us through prayer. When Jesus died on the cross He forgave and removed our sin. But His death also provided access to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace in times of need. Our services have a time of prayer where believers can boldly access His throne of grace through prayer. It is essential to who we are: a people who call upon the name of the Lord.
