Pastor Paul was a poor preacher at an old, poor church along the coast of North Carolina. He wanted nothing more than to carry on the Lord’s work, save souls, and pray for those in need. When a wealthy investor began to make huge contributions to the church, Pastor Paul realized that the power of money was equal to the power of his pulpit. Yet, the good Pastor never realized the consequences of accepting such huge sums of money until it was too late.
What if the problem with the church isn’t what we are doing but rather what we are not doing? In Prayers from the Pews, Teri Lynne Underwood explores the connection between embracing Scripture, evaluating personal experience, and experiencing the power in praying for your church. Acknowledging the difficulties and short-comings of the “institution of church” while challenging believers to invest in the study of the early church and harness the power of prayer, Teri Lynne brings a voice of hope to the often-hopeless landscape of the modern church experience. Prayers from the Pews is ideal for individuals seeking guidance in praying for their churches as well as small groups who want to experience the power of prayer in their own congregation. More than another study of prayer, Prayers from the Pews is an invitation to pray.
Is your congregation getting smaller? Let Pastor Richard Hayward help you bring more souls to your church. A longtime pastor and award-winning marketing director, Pastor Hayward blends his secular knowledge of marketing with his faith in the power of God to institute new programs and revamp old programs in order to bring more souls to a knowledge of God and Jesus Christ. His programs have been so successful in his own congregation that he has remained the pastor for nearly two decades in a church that, prior to his arrival, was going to be closed. Never underestimate the power of God.
