Compel Them!!

Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (Luke‬ ‭14:23‬)

Two big things are happening this evening at Friendship Bible Church.

First, it's prayer meeting night. Join us at 6:30 as we pray together. You need not fear being called on to pray aloud. Some choose to do that and some choose to pray silently, and both are fine. Not praying at all? Well that's not so good. If you'll join us at 6:30 we will have you out by 7:30.

Second, it's the best opportunity you will have before Old Fashioned Sunday to fulfill Luke 14:23. Right after prayer meeting we will be stamping and sticking labels on 2500 postcard invitations. You can be part of inviting 2500 people to the Lord's house on Old Fashioned Sunday! Pizza and soft drinks will be in abundance, as will laughter and joy and prayer. Join us? Many hands make light work.

Remember that Old Fashioned Sunday is just around the corner.  Pray pray pray for souls to be saved and a community to be revived. Our theme verse this year is "Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee." (Deuteronomy‬ ‭32:7‬)

Remember that Jesus loves you, and longs to hear from you and fellowship with you.

Remember that you have friends and loved ones who are lost and headed for hell.  

Remember that there is nothing you can do that will have more impact on the lost around you than prayer.

Remember that there is nothing you can do that will bring revival to your soul faster than prayer.

Remember that there is nothing you can do to help those in need more than prayer.

Remember that there is nothing you can do that will heal the hurting more than prayer.

Remember to PRAY today!  And remember that this evening is your weekly opportunity to pray alongside other believers... praying for them... praying with them... hearing them pray for you. 

And remember that we will be praying very specifically for Old Fashioned Sunday in every prayer meeting during August.

Remember - PRAYER MEETING at 6:30 PM this evening.  And we'll have you back to the Olympics by 7:30.

SO SO SO SO SO SO SO Important!

Prayer meeting, that is. It's this evening at 6:30 in the Sanctuary, and few things we do at FBC are as important as prayer meeting.

Many churches have given up on prayer meetings, and no longer offer them. They may provide various reasons for that omission, but the sad fact is that they no longer have prayer meetings because Christians by and large simply refuse to attend and participate in prayer meetings.

But we've had a mid-week prayer meeting for 9 years now, and will continue until Jesus comes because it is the source of our power, and our victory, and our peace, and our joy. Prayer works. And praying together works even better!

Join us at 6:30? We will have you on the way home by 7:30! Believe me, you will be glad you prayed with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
