On Becoming a Praying Church

Steps to Becoming a Praying Church (1 Timothy 2:1-8)

First of all, then, I urge that requests, prayers, intercessions, and thanks be offered on behalf of all people, even for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. Such prayer for all is good and welcomed before God our Savior, since he wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself as a ransom for all, revealing God’s purpose at his appointed time. For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle—I am telling the truth; I am not lying—and a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. So I want the men to pray in every place, lifting up holy hands without anger or dispute.

Trinity is fast-becoming a Praying Church. We are holding monthly Taizé Prayer services, weekly Prayer Team gatherings where anyone can join us to pray for our church, our community and our world, and our Sunday services are always bathed in both contemplative and intercessory prayers before, during and after worship. For detailed information on how and why Trinity and how we are considered a praying church, call the church office at 386-734-4425 to connect with Pastor Todd Bardin or email him at seniorpastor@trinitydeland.org.
