One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism...One Prayer?


I ran across this article today and found it interesting. out of Edmonds, WA is spearheading an effort called "One Prayer."  The idea is that a pastor preaches a sermon on the subject,  Craig Groeschel,'s senior pastor wondered if he could pray one thing for the church universal and have it happen, what would it be?

He then contacted three other churches and asked their pastors to do the same.  The idea is that the preacher of the local church would preach his/her sermon on one Sunday, June 22-23.  He would receive three videos of the other pastors preaching, and he had his choice: he could show the videos of the other pastors preaching on what their One Prayer would be on succeeding Sundays.  He could use the videos for a midweek meeting.  Whatever. 

Not only did it expand far beyond those three churches, but today 1,200 churches, representing 700 people from around the globe are participating in the One Church undertaking. 

I think the idea has some potential.  It doesn't really fit in with the flow of expository preaching like I have been doing. But it might be a nice break for a month. 

Just an idea.  You can find the article here.
