Tonight myself and whomever God brings to North Prairie will go on our second phase of prayer/needs walks around our community. Our goal is to reach out to the community without being too impeding. We simply go door to door and ask if they have any prayer requests. We try to make the people the experts and we are the servants. Then after the first response, we ask what they perceive to be the greatest need of our community. It is very simple, but has been a great success thus far.
We are hoping to get many homes done tonight. From our findings, we will not only pray for everyone in worship, but also evaluate the best way for us to show mercy to those surrounding us. As the church is meant to be a Gospel place AND a place of service to our neighbors, we unfortunately tend to stay within our own walls. Pray for a chance to tell of Jesus, and also to find new ways to serve our community with mercy.
