I Praise Jesus Because...
Gather the family around for this year's Alter the Altar family worship project from October 1-31! For the entire month of October, let’s zip our lips against negativity and complaining, and open our mouths wide in praise of our great God.
When you gather the family at the altar for worship, each family member will share a praise starting with the words, “I praise Jesus because…” Additionally, all petitions will be presented in the form of a praise to God. Use your imagination and each day you will be adding another “stone” in your Altar of Praise.
Plus join a Family Worship Together livestream on October 31 at 6:30 pm on Washington Conference's Facebook page!
[Please note: if you downloaded/printed the reading plan before September 30, you will want to update the Day 4 scripture reference to Nehemiah 9:31, not 8:31]
About Prayer Ministries
“Prayer is the work of a lover,” says Francis Chan. And those who love the Lord with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their strength (Deut. 6:4), will be drawn to prayer.
Calling God’s people to the priority of prayer in all aspects of life is the mission of the department of prayer ministries. We do this by modeling, resourcing, and equipping the Body of Christ for prayer, worship and outreach.
At the conclusion of the Altar Project (year 1), a head elder shared how family worship has changed in their household. During the 30 days, the children became the guardians of the family worship time. It was the children who called the family together nightly to worship God. Now that the 30 days has ended, family worship continues in their home as a way of life. This demonstrates the purpose and role of Prayer Ministries—to strengthen the spiritual growth of our members through the experience and privilege of prayer.
Prayer Ministries Vision
Every home occupied by the more than 20,000 WA Conference members, should be a church where the family worships God. Charles Spurgeon said, “Every house should be the house of God, and there should be a church in every house.”
Our vision is for every Adventist home in Washington Conference to be a house of prayer and ministry center in their respective communities. Thus, we will take the light of the Gospel currently shining within 120 church buildings, and multiply it in more than 5,000 homes across the conference.
