May His Kingdom Come!
During Lent, Calvary will be studying the Kingdom of God on Sundays. The Kingdom of God is the rule of God as revealed in the person of Jesus, the Christ. The Kingdom is God’s goodness and love acting in the world. Jesus tells us that this Kingdom is here right now though it is hidden (Mark 1:15; Matt 13:44). Sadly, we can miss the many benefits of the Kingdom of God—having eyes but not seeing and having ears but not hearing.
We do not want to miss out on His Kingdom, so Jesus tells us to seek it (Matt 6:33). Biblical Seeking involves asking. The primary way of asking for the Kingdom of God to manifest is through prayer. If we desire to see God’s love and goodness do miraculous things in our midst, we need to pray.
Prayer, in part, is a request. When we pray, we are asking God to do something that we cannot do. But many of us have been taught that prayer is simply speaking back to God what he is already going to do. This is an unhelpful biblical view that removes any reason to pray. While there are some things that God will do whether we pray or not, there are many things that he does not do because we do not ask (James 4:2).
If you are like me, there is a need to grow in prayer. With that in mind, we are inviting you into a season of prayer. Each weekday during Lent there will be an opportunity to pray at Calvary. The times will be:
• 12pm-12:45pm each weekday except on Tuesdays
• On Tuesdays, we will gather to pray from 7pm-8:00pm
A Lenten Call to Personal Prayer
For the 40 days of Lent you are also invited to join others who are committing to pray privately and continually during Lent for the Kingdom to come at Calvary. If you accept the invitation , we will send email encouragements and share testimonies about what God is doing.
