Today we open a discussion about prayer here on Vibrance. Watch for or click the tag “prayer” for related items as they’re introduced. I hope this will be a “slow, soaking rain” sort of discussion. I’ll do everything in my power to help it be so, in the spirit of Hebrews 10.24, Philippians 1.9-11, and 3 John 1.2-4.

Jesus quoted Isaiah, His words are recorded in all three of the synoptic gospels (Mt. 21.13; Mk 11.17; Lk 10.46)

My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.

Isaiah 56.7 NASB


Let’s open with a simple, straightforward question:

How would you say the church

(your church and the church at large)

is doing as a house of prayer?
