Cherry Stance's Corporate Prayer In Worship

Decent Essays
Prayer done weekly after responsive reading and sometime quarterly with the entire congregation is considered corporate because it initiates a spirit of agreement. In addition, it takes place on Sunday mornings and before Bible Study currently on Tuesday nights. Prayer is a two-way conversation, which requires listening as well as talking to God. The author, Cherry Stance writes, “Corporate prayer in worship holds the capacity to move in two direction: upward and outward. The most common view of prayer is upward, for prayer is often depicted as raising our praises and petitions to God who is above and beyond us. This sometimes referred to as the vertical dimension of prayer—prayers ascending from people to God (and God speaking back to people).”
