Today, I read Ryan McGraw’s exegetical defense for corporate prayer and its necessity for preaching. He bases his argument on John 14:12–14 and a certain pattern in Acts. Pretty convincing. It should be read along with his other essay-booklet, How Should We Pray at Prayer Meetings, which gives good advice on the specificity of prayer requests, the focus of our prayer, avoiding vain repetition, and more.

With that, let me encourage members and friends of Covenant to attend our 9:00am prayer meeting each Sunday before worship.
