Will you pray for us daily? Looking for 100 people.

Community, Teaching | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Prayer is to the Christian life, what air is to breathing. Prayer is our life line to our Father in Heaven. As a young child holds the hand of his dad for stability, direction and relationship, so in prayer we hold the proverbial hand of Our Father for the same (Lk 11:9-13). He knows what we need before we ask him (Matthew 6:8). Yet, he also says we do not have because we do not ask (James 4:2). He invites us to humbly, yet boldly, ask of him in faith and it will be ours (Matthew 21:22; Mk 11:24; 1 John 5:14-15). Yet, too often, we overlook it entirely.

As a newly forming church in the heart of the city we are deeply aware that Jesus is the one who builds his church (Matthew 16:18) and he primarily does so through the prayers and lives of his people. Broken people rescued by grace should be a prayerful people.

Would you be willing to pray for us every day over the course of this next year?

Therefore, because planting a healthy, vibrant and God glorifying church in downtown Seattle is impossible apart from Him, we are creating a prayer team of 100 people to pray for us daily for our first year. You will be able to track monthly prayer updates here. You can also subscribe to receive up-to-date prayer requests by giving us your email here. Let us know by subscribing to receive the prayer updates via email or emailing us at info (at) downtowncornerstone.org.

In prayer, you too get to participate in the planting of this church. In prayer, you too get participate in God’s unfolding story in downtown Seattle. In prayer, you will get to see God do things you otherwise would never have notice, let alone imagined. In prayer, you get to be part of lives being changed for all eternity through this new church plant. In prayer, you get to be on the front lines of what Jesus is doing – and is going do to – in this great city we so deeply love. Will you join us?

“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!” (Ps 115:1)
