Rendezvous with God

 Now how does Satan hinder prayer?  By temptation to postpone or curtail it, by bringing in wandering thoughts and all sorts of distractions, or through unbelief and hopelessness.  Happy is the prayer hero who, through it all, takes care to hold fast and use his weapon.  Like our Lord in Gethsemane, the more violently the enemy attacked, the more earnestly He prayed and did not cease until He had obtained the victory.  After all other parts of the armor had been named, Paul added, “With all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Eph 6:18). Without prayer, the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s Word have no power.  All depends on prayer.  May God teach us to believe this and to hold fast!  — The Prayer Life, Andrew Murray

Not only do we have an adversary who seeks to hinder our prayer life, but our busy, noisy lives make spending time in prayer extremely difficult.  The phone, family members, chores that need to be done… it seems this ‘Tyrany of the Urgent never lets up.

The Prayer Center at Journey Community Church is a space set aside for you to meet with God…no phones, no interruptions, no reminders of the work that never ends, just a peaceful rendezvous spot for you and your Creator.
