Since I have been here at New Life Church I have slowly gotten to know a number of the local pastors. There is a group of us that meets every week for lunch at Perkins. It has been good just to get to know each other and share the ups and downs of ministry. Over the past few months we have begun praying as pastors on a monthly basis for revival here in Watertown.
“The coming revival must begin with a great revival of prayer. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundance of rain will first be heard. An increase of secret prayer with ministers will be the sure harbinger of blessing.” -Andrew Murray
I am excited to let you know one of the things we have decided to do is work together as churches and begin hosting times of worship and prayer. Praising God in song for who he is and asking God to work in a new way in the city of Watertown. In order to get the word out we have created a website that encourages people to be praying for the city of Watertown. You can find the website HERE. We have also created a Facebook page HERE.
Would you do me a favor? Take a moment to pray for Watertown, South Dakota. Pray that the Holy Spirit would be at work in a mighty way. Pray that Christians would be energized with renewed passion to love God and love others. Pray that those who do not yet know Christ would come to know and worship him. Pray that in all that we do that God is glorified. Thank you!
“All revival begins, and continues, in the prayer meeting. Some have also called prayer the “great fruit of revival.” In times of revival, thousands may be found on their knees for hours, lifting up their heartfelt cries, with thanksgiving, to heaven.”
