Could we be That Kind of Church?
February 24, 2012

I seem driven these days by a seven-word phrase that describes the prayer meeting out of which the Lord launched His Church.  Acts 1:14 says “they all joined together constantly in prayer.”  Literally, they prayed with a unified passion and when they were done praying, they prayed again and again and again.  Why?  I believe it was because of the impossible mission of being Jesus’ witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts1:8) and their total inadequacy to make that happen.

But what is keeping me up nights about this verse is wondering if my church – if any church – could pray constantly for world evangelism with that same unified passion?  Honestly I don’t know, but we’re trying.  Here’s how.  Every Sunday we feature one country in a U4theU Prayer Time.  I share information about the country, distribute Joshua Project Unreached People Group Cards from that country, ask people to take a knee and we pray.  Is everyone praying with the same unified passion?  I doubt it.  But is God listening?  I’m sure of it.  What will be the result?  Well perhaps God will soften our hearts to one Unreached People Group we must reach!
