2 Chron. 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Col. 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Classis Hamilton seeks to encourage prayer in the following ways:
Prayer Coordinator: Do you love to pray? Perhaps you can help others pray -- contact the Stated Clerk
Classis Prayer Gatherings: Periodic prayer gatherings are held to gather prayer teams from all churches in Classis Hamilton.
Prayer at Classis: The prayer team of each host church provides prayer cover for the Classis Hamilton Meetings. In addition, each classis meeting begins with an intentional time of prayer. Please join us in praying for Classis Hamilton, its pastors, churches and ministries.
Prayer Ministry in Your Church: Each church has its own prayer ministry as prayer is our lifeline.
Prayer in Small Groups:
Here is a great webinar about how to pray in Small Groups. The webinar is from Coffee Break Ministry, but it is applicable to all Small Groups as well as many other ministry contexts.
