One Voice

In our efforts to reach our community it is important that we have like-minded people work together. It can't be a continued effort to build independent kingdoms and receive personal glory when positive things happen. The only way the strongholds of discrimination, poverty, socioeconomic oppression, and selfishness can be shattered is through the concentrated & unified prayer of God's people. It is a radical return to being the Church that God intended us to be--one that the gates of hell can't stand against.

I was privileged to take part in the beginnings of that last night at Central Park. Churches of various denominations and ethnicity joined in prayer for our schools, parents, and community. It was a fulfillment of the prayer of Jesus for His followers-that we would be one as He and His Father are One. This deliberate advance of unified prayer will bring revival to our community if we will continue to trust in the unfailing power of the Holy Spirit. I am excited about the prospects of these continued efforts and believe that God will honor the fervent, persistent prayers of His people if we will remain faithful.
