When writing to the church in Thessalonica, Paul reminded them to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and indeed the same is important today – that as Christians we take every opportunity to pray. This should of course be something that takes place individually, but also when we meet together, so as a church we are sure to start all our meetings with prayer. On a Tuesday afternoon those that are able meet together for a dedicated time of prayer for the people that make up our church, for those called to lead and serve in the church and for all the activities that take place there.
Unlike most events at DCF, this meeting takes place off site, usually in the pastor’s home, and typically it doesn’t take place during school holidays. Other times of prayer in the church include the monthly men’s prayer breakfast and the prayer that results from the DCF Prayer Network which is coordinated via a private Facebook group.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 4:6-7
