God has been challenging us to become a praying church, not just a church that prays. A church that prays will pray at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of a worship service. A praying church is a church full of people who pray! Not just on Sunday's. Not just before a meal. Not just when a crisis comes up. The "church" is not a collection of people gathered on a Sunday morning. The church is a collection of people who are called out, different, set apart. And, we are called out to do something, to accomplish something together!
As prayer moves to the forefront of who we are as a church, we have come up with Seven Prayer Emphases for LifeSpring Christian Church. I have challenged the pastors, the staff, the elders and deacons to make these prayer points a real priority in their prayer time. As we all pray, as one voice, with one united prayer, God will come down from heaven to "see what is happening" at LifeSpring. Please join us as we prayer for these seven things.

My prayer is that you will take these seven areas of prayer and "Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck. When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you." (Prov. 6:21:22)
