One Voice May 2018

Regional Night of Prayer and Worship

Thursday – May 3rd, 7:00 PM
Immanuel Baptist Church
501 N. Shackleford Road, Little Rock, AR 72211

The convergence of our upcoming One Voice regional night of prayer and the National Day of Prayer is a significant opportunity to unite Central Arkansas in the name of Jesus. As we prepare for this special event, we are asking you to partner with us in prayer. The Lord has raised up Arkansas Pastor Ronnie Floyd as the President of the National Day of Prayer, and he is calling the nation to pray for the theme of UNITY from Ephesians 4:3,

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” We hope to unite an unprecedented number of churches and leaders on this special occasion in a visible demonstration of united prayer for America.

Please mark your calendar and join our team by mobilizing your church and inviting churches in your network to attend.

Contact logan@arkansasforchrist.org to add your church to our list of participants. Further details including promotional material will be available soon.

2018 Prayer Summit Reflection

Reflection – 2018 Arkansas Prayer Summit

~Keith Lape – Pastor – River City Church

Having been a Prayer Summit participant for about 18 years, I have come to anticipate this experience as one of the highlights of my year. During this time, my association with the CityChurch Network in general, and the Prayer Summit in particular, has profoundly influenced my approach to prayer, ministry, and life. Largely influenced by this framework, I have woven a variety of prayer practices into the fabric of my life and ministry that have set me on a much healthier, spiritually vital, Christ-dependent, and empowered trajectory.

This year‘s edition of the event has not disappointed. I love the variety of Christian faith traditions represented in this group, particularly because of the unity that we experience based upon our common faith in the person of Jesus. During our time together, earthly walls of race, heritage, culture, class, and age are being broken down, making way for the ministry of reconciliation to be unleashed

A central conviction that we share is that prayer and the Word are essential for any authentic Kingdom advancement. Speaking of the “Kingdom,” this emerged as a significant recurring theme throughout the Summit. It originally surfaced during our first evening together, as we walked through the Lord’s Prayer.

This year, instead of having an outside facilitator, we were served by several of our local men, who shared this role. The Lord used all of them beautifully in our time of scripture fed, spirit led, worship based prayer.

In addition to these rich times in prayer, that made three hours pass in a heartbeat, we shared wonderful fellowship over meals and during break times. As the old proverbial song goes, “make new friends, and keep the old; one is silver, and the other gold.“ The wisdom herein was experienced bountifully this year as always. As an older adult, I forged a friendship with a young man who inspired me with his deep faith, zeal for God’s glory, humble service, teachable spirit, and his consistently encouraging attitude.

One final thing that is noteworthy about this year’s Summit, is that we met at brand new place that, despite some flooding, boasted gorgeous scenery and cozy accommodations. I’m already eagerly looking forward to the next Summit, and I’m hoping then to make even more new friends

NEW: Leader Prayer Groups

The CityChurch Network of Arkansas is excited about expanding our traditional Third Thursday Prayer Luncheons into monthly gatherings of pastors and leaders. Here is a brief overview from Logan Bloom – Prayer Leader at the CityChurch Network of Arkansas:

John 17:22-23 – The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.

Leader Prayer Groups – Overview

   ~Logan Bloom – CityChurch Network Prayer Leader

For the last two decades the CityChurch Network of Arkansas, formerly the Nehemiah Network, has existed to unite the church so that the world may know Jesus. We derive this mission from the High Priestly Prayer and from the example of the First Century Church. This is the way that Jesus instructed his disciples and the model that enabled the gospel to spread like wildfire as churches cared for each other and sought the welfare of their cities.

The urgency of this vision is even more critical now than when we began. Our churches can be examples of unity to withstand the divisiveness that is eroding America. Among our increasingly busy schedules, I believe that this vision is worth prioritizing. We must value each other in the same way that Jesus instructed his disciples. God has a storyline for Arkansas, and the task has come to us to unite under His cause.

New for this year the CityChurch Network is seeking to mobilize 100 pastors and ministry leaders into localized Leader Prayer Groups that meet monthly across Central Arkansas. Rather than try to gather everyone to one place at one time, we believe we can include more pastors by facilitating smaller Leader Prayer Groups at a place and time convenient for each group.

The task is simple: commit to gather with 3-4 other pastors and ministry leaders of other churches to pray for each other and for the city. We are also asking each group member to commit to bring ten of their church members to two One Voice regional gatherings per year. The CityChurch Network will provide a helpful monthly prayer guide featuring regional ministry highlights and prayer topics, and we will organize special occasional luncheons to bring our groups together.

If you are interested in helping coordinate a Leader Prayer Group in your area, the responsibility is very light. Please contact lbloom@citychurchar.org to begin. If you are interested in joining a Leader Prayer Group, please complete this connection form or reach out to any of our CityChurch Network leadership team and we will help you locate a group.
