Prayer

Do you want to pray? Pray more? Learn how to pray? Join us at these prayer gatherings or use the online resources to pray on your own and with others.

We must be a church that prays—it is only in prayer and through prayer that the Holy Spirit will make the gospel a fiery reality in us.

“After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.” — Acts 4:31

Pray on behalf of Redeemer West Side

 


Who we are as a church: 

  • Overall vision: ask God to make us a church of Jesus Christ that helps build a great city for all people through a movement of the gospel that brings personal conversion, community formation, social justice, and cultural renewal to New York City and through it, to the world.
  • Gospel centrality: pray that we keep the gospel at the center of all we do.
  • Changed lives: pray that we allow the gospel to transform our hearts, identities and lives.
  • Gospel community: pray that we live out the implications of the gospel in deep, transparent community and covenantal relationships marked by boldness and humility.
  • City vision: pray that we find great energy and joy living in the city as we see its beauty and brokenness through God's eyes.
  • Mercy and justice: pray that in response to God's grace, we pour out our lives in service to the poor and marginalized.
  • Cultural renewal: pray that we become agents of cultural renewal as God redeems business, art, education, government, healthcare and every vocation and every institution.
  • Outward face: pray that we welcome non-Christian neighbors in our homes and congregations, engaging their questions and doubts in winsome and thoughtful ways.
  • Gospel movement: pray that we actively join in the dynamic gospel movement of churches and organizations across the city.
  • Church planting: pray that we deepen our commitment to planting and helping others plant hundreds of new churches to serve the city.
