Prayer Ministry

Prayer is a vital part of our spiritual walk with God. It is how we reach out to him in times of trouble and times of thanksgiving.

ECC has had a vision to pray for a powerful move of God, that impacts our communities and our nation. We want to see people break free from bondages that have kept them from living a full life. We believe this is so important that in 2002 our Prayer Centre was setup. Since that time this has ensured that we are live 24hours a day, giving continuous prayer and having unbroken contact with God.

CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY - COLOSSIANS CHAPTERS 1-4 - JANUARY 2022

 

Colossians is one of Paul’s letters written from prison. The church at Colosse was founded by Epaphras who was its pastor and was visiting Paul as he was awaiting trial in Rome. Even at this early stage of the life of the church false teachings about Christ were already starting to circulate and seeking to lead believers into occultic practices.

 

Paul writes this letter to demonstrate that Christ is the incarnation of the eternal, living God whose fullness dwells in Christ, who is the one who brought all that exists into being which was created by him and for him and he is Lord over all. He is also the one, who through the cross, is able to reconcile a fallen world back to the Father.

 

So the letter clearly teaches: the total deity of Christ, the full humanity of Christ, his supremacy over all spirit powers, the all-sufficient work of redemption in reconciling mankind to God through the cross and the uselessness of religious rituals and human philosophy.

 

As he writes his letter Paul shows how the church can live a life victorious over all circumstances by:

 

  1. Living in this world but not being of this world, since the believer is set apart unto God and who is able to grow in all manner of spiritual fruitfulness and spiritual maturity.
  2. Harnessing the power of intercessory prayer. Paul shows us how he intercedes for the church and what he prays for. Colossians 1:9-14. Epaphras is also a man who knows how to be ‘…always wrestling in prayer…’ for the church. Colossians 4:12
  3. Recognising and living in the light of, the all-supremacy of Christ, whose power and position is unchallengeable by any being
  4. Being able to endure and overcome suffering
  5. Understanding the ‘hope’ that is Christ in us. The believer has a present and a future that is inexpressibly glorious
  6. Understanding the all-sufficiency of the cross to accomplish our salvation and restoration to the glory once lost through sin
  7. Knowing the power of living out the christian life both in the world and in the home

 

As we pray through this letter, we are using scriptures that are explosive in their power, as they reveal that Christ his supreme over sin, death, the devil and all evil spirit beings. We are in Christ and Christ is in us – the hope of eternal glory.

1st – Colossians 1:1-6 The fruit of the gospel

    led by the holy spirit - acts chapters 18-20 february 2022

     

    These three chapters in the book of Acts demonstrate the church doing what it has been called to do. It shows us how the apostle Paul pioneered new churches. He adapted his strategy to the local circumstances. In Corinth he went first to the Jews in the town, who would have already been familiar with the Old Testament and then to those gentiles who had a familiarity with the teachings in the synagogue, who were known as the “God-fearers” and finally to those gentiles who had no knowledge at all of the Old Testament.

     

    He spent a year and a half pioneering the church in Corinth, which was a city that in many ways had a number of things in common with London. It had a population drawn from many nationalities and contained people from all social classes and backgrounds, who Paul sought to mould into one family in Christ.

     

    His subsequent letter to the Corinthians shows they were converted from all kinds of ungodly backgrounds, including idolatry, sexual immorality and prostitution; some had been, thieves, drunkards, slanderers and swindlers. But they came to know Christ, were radically changed and were fully familiar with the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit, even if Paul did have to give them a lot of subsequent correction and teaching to bring them to spiritual maturity.

     

    His good friends, Priscilla and Aquila, who were running a tent-making business in Corinth, were examples of church members using their business and talents to further the work of the Lord, including using their homes for church meetings. After working with Paul in Corinth, they then moved their business to Ephesus in preparation for Paul to later plant a church there. They are seen encouraging and enlightening Apollos on his way to becoming a very motivational international Bible teacher.

     

    Later in Ephesus, starting with just twelve believers whom he led into the experience of the baptism in the Holy Spirit and helped by his friends, Paul proceeded to build up the church over the next two years through Bible studies and discussions in the local community hall. In his meetings he prayed for the sick and saw people healed and delivered. Prayer clothes also were used effectively for those who could not attend the meetings.

     

    There followed a mass revival in the city where people turned wholesale from witchcraft to Christ, bringing transformation to the neighbourhood. The church soon went on to become internationally renowned.

    The Book of Acts shows the early church in supernatural action. God’s purposes have not changed, nor has the Holy Spirit. This month as we pray through these strategies and moves of God, we are asking to see the same things in our midst.

            But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank. Therefore, he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself….God had brought Daniel into the favour and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs (Dan 1:8-9).
