“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” -Samuel Chadwick
Temple's focus on prayer has 3 main components that are aligned with our core values:
Personal (Life Worship)
We encourage members to prioritize prayer in their personal time with the Lord using the PRAISE tool as a guide:
- Praise and Thanksgiving (Psalm 100:4, 1 Thessalonians 5:18) Praise God for who He is, thank Him for what He has done
- Repent (Psalm 19:14, Mark 1:15, Acts 3:19, Hebrews 12:1-3) Confess sin and ask God to cleanse you
- Accept (2 Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 6:10-20, 1 John 1:9) That I am forgiven and cleansed when I repent.
- Intercede (1 Samuel 12:23, Ephesians 6:18-20, James 5:16) Your family, persecuted church, missionary birthdays and International Missions prayer points. (see links below)
