“History belongs to the intercessors” (Walter Wink). When God moves in history, He does so through the prayers of His people. God invites us to partner with Him for the fulfilment of His global disciplemaking agenda and become more like Jesus, our great and constant intercessor along the way. (Hebrews 7:25)
Covenant EFC’s prayer life is powered by the twin engines of intimacy and intercession. At the heart of intimacy is ministering to God before ministering to others. That is our spiritual birth right and privilege as His royal priesthood. It means spending unhurried time with God, with no agenda. This can be very counter-cultural in our fast-paced and high-performance world, even for His disciples. At the heart of intercession is calling on God before trying other options. The early Church was birthed through prayer, sustained through prayer, and multiplied through prayer. We can plant the seed, we can even water it, but only God gives the increase (1 Cor 3:16). And He does it in answer to prayer!
In addition to the regular prayer platforms such as the monthly CG Prayer and Praise to grow and be discipled in prayer, there are also opportunities to serve as intercessors and altar ministers in the Prayer ministry.
