  1. Saturday, November 11th Morning of Focused Prayer led by Steve Hawthorne

    Community Updates

    Tomorrow morning!  Come and pray with us from 8:55 -11:55 AM.

    A long-time member of Hope Chapel, our own Steve Hawthorne is a mission/prayer mobilizer with WayMakers. He is internationally known for his teaching on prayer, having taught on and led prayer efforts around the globe.  

    “Come help us as we work together in groups to form prayers from scripture.  Some prayers we will sing, some we will pray, and come away knowing we have more to pray than we thought.”

    We are sure to be encouraged and challenged, even energized and renewed.  Lord, let your kingdom come and let your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!

    There will be breakfast tacos at 8:30. Email deb@thedormans.com if you want a taco or two.  I will probably bring a few extras, just in case! 

    Hope to see you tomorrow morning.

  2. Citywide Prayer Meeting on September 14th Led by Jim Cymbala at Hyde Park Baptist

    Community Updates

    Come join in the citywide prayer hosted by Hyde Park Baptist Church (3901 Speedway, 78759) on Thursday, September 14th at 7:00 PM. Our city welcomes Jim Cymbala, senior pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, that night. Jim is the author of several books including Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire: What Happens When God’s Spirit Invades the Hearts of His People, a Christian book of the year.

    Jim says in an article on prayer, “Let us evaluate the real prospects for a revival of the prayer meeting. According to Paul, it is possible to bring the Church back to God’s priorities. ‘First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men.’ from 1 Timothy 2:1. Whether in preparation for a fresh, powerful move of the Spirit or whether as a sign of an ongoing present revival of the Spirit – the prayer meeting will be paramount in the life of the Church. Hungry, sincere seekers of God will pour out their heart’s desire to Him in corporate prayer. Worship and praise will spontaneously ascend from the spirits of men and women who have seen Him who is invisible.”
