Corporate Prayer: Worth the Investment
For a few hours every year, the daily work of OneHope’s ministry comes to an abrupt halt. An intentional pause and recalibration. The OneHope team participates in corporate times of prayer. Although these gatherings cost thousands of dollars in manpower, they are undoubtedly worth the return on investment.
We meet to publicly glorify God and acknowledge His Lordship. This cultivates humility in our hearts and redirects us back to the Lord we serve and the mission He has given us.
The OneHope team works across many time zones, and in an array of different ministry contexts. Prayer unifies us. We lift up the needs together. Our corporate prayer times are equivalent to going to a chiropractor that tends to our spirits. Prayer brings alignment. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 shares this model for us: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
Prayer is essential to continue the ministry of OneHope!
