Next Prayer Summit: Sunday, January 28th, at 6:30 pm
Join us in person at Grant Memorial Church
We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Church of the Rock and Anchor Point Church for a transformative 14-day journey of prayer and fasting. Over this period, we will come together for three distinct prayer events designed to cultivate unity among our churches and to pray for the transformation of our communities.
January 16 - Anchor Point Church - Worship & Prayer at 7 pm.
January 23 - Church of the Rock - Worship & Prayer at 7 pm.
January 28 - Grant Memorial Church - Supper at 5:30 pm - Worship & Prayer at 6:30 pm (Childcare provided).
From January 14-28, you are also invited to participate in some sort of fast. Our friends at Anchor Point and Church of the Rock are encouraging their people to fast from the consumption of media. Whether this means giving up watching TV or taking a break from scrolling through social media, we encourage you to join us in creating space in our busy lives for prayer and a change of routine.
Join in on changing your routine and rhythm for the purpose of seeking the Lord alongside hundreds of others. We can’t wait to see how the Lord will faithfully move throughout 2024 as we humble ourselves, pray and seek the Lord's face.
You are more than welcome to fast in another way if you would prefer - the hope is simply to join together in giving up something to help shape our priorities and remind us of our need for God - while pointing us to Him in prayer.
ENGAGE IN A GREAT ADVENTURE OF PRAYER—IN COMMUNITY!
Prayer is a privilege and a powerful invitation to partner with our amazing Heavenly Father to see His will done on earth. Over the upcoming year together, Grant will host Prayer Summits, moments where we can grow in our capacity to love God and others. We pray that together we can walk in unity toward that which God is calling us to as individuals, families and as a church community
So whether you're new to prayer, a prayer closet mountain mover, or need some inspiration, join our Grant family as we grow in this extraordinary form of communication with our Heavenly Father—together!
"Without silence and solitude with God, we remain unconvinced of our worth. Instead, we will live each day striving for affirmation, praise, and success. Rather than being set free to love others, we will be endlessly seeking to prove our own value. We will labour to water our gardens by drawing buckets from the world's empty wells. In the end, this leads not to love, but to a dry and weary existence."
– Skye Jethani –
Something truly amazing takes place when we put aside our regularly scheduled programming to engage with God directly, to bring a pause to our busyness, and embrace time to connect with our Lord and His powerful love.
As a church, we need space with God so that He can pour down more of His presence over our lives and those around us.
ENGAGE IN INTENTIONAL PRAYER
We encourage you to carve out time each day for intentional prayer. It’s important to keep notes which can be as simple as using some (or all) of the following prompts:
Praise God. List what you are grateful for today.
Write out your specific needs and requests.
Ask God for help and guidance on all the decisions you need to make this week, even list them.
List and Pray over those in your life who you want to grow closer to God and/or discover Him.
Invite God to examine your life. Spend time in confession and repentance (1 John 1:9; Romans 8:1)
"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God."
