Invitation to the May GOGCC Prayer Meeting at Mashpee Baptist Church

By Fred Gray |  May 3, 2018




Blessings!! Glory of God on Cape Cod Family,

It is our privilage and an honor to invite you to the next monthly Glory of God on Cape Cod Prayer Meeting on May 23 from 6:30 – 8 PM at Mashpee Baptist Church 27 Great Neck Road North, Mashpee Ma. Across from the Town Hall. 

* Keep praying Brethren, and do not lose heart.

1 Thessalonians 5:16 -22
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast to what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.

* Let us prepare ourselves together through prayer for what God has for His Church on Cape Cod.

In a sermon titled “The Most High, a Prayer-Hearing God,” Jonathan Edwards gave two reasons why God requires prayer:

With respect to God, prayer is but a sensible acknowledgement of our dependence on Him to His glory. As He hath made all things for His own glory, so He will be glorified and acknowledged by His creatures; and it is fit that He should require this of those who would be subjects of His mercy . . . [it] is a suitable acknowledgement of our dependence on the power and mercy of God for that which we need, and but a suitable honor paid to the great Author and Fountain of all good.
With respect to ourselves, God requires prayer of us . . . Fervent prayer in many ways tends to prepare the heart. Hereby is excited a sense of our need . . . whereby the mind is more prepared to prize [his mercy] . . . Our prayer to God may excite in us a suitable sense and consideration of our dependence on God for the mercy we ask, and a suitable exercise of faith in God’s sufficiency, so that we may be prepared to glorify his name when the mercy is received.

(The Works of Jonathan Edwards [Carlisle, Pa.: Banner of Truth Trust, 1974], 2:116)

The Congregation at MBC appreciates the opporutnity to worship and pray with the larger church body from Glory of God on Cape Cod.
 We hope you can join us Wednesday, May 23.  Also we encourage you to extend this invitation to your younger generation of believers because they may be key in who God uses for revival in our area  and our country.

Sincerely

Minister Frederick Gray
