“Prayer is not preparation for the greater work. Prayer is the greater work.” (Oswald Chambers)

This year Mosaic’s resolution has been focused on prayer: To individually and corporately pursue the renewing and transforming power of prayer.

We have hosted many prayer gatherings, offered prayer every Sunday after the Lord’s Supper, and we have sought to pursue prayer actively. And we will continue to pursue life as a “praying church.”

We began our year with prayer and we are going to end our year in prayer.

On Sunday, 12/31 before we celebrate a New Year we are going to celebrate the Eternal King Jesus by gathering to pray. Our service on Sunday will be focused on prayer, with large portions of the time given to praying together.


Because prayer is the fundamental posture of the Christian life. Prayer is where we really show what we deeply believe. Do we believe that we are in control or that God is in control? Do we believe that we need God’s forgiveness or that we can really get by without grace? Do we believe that God is the best thing or do we think his gifts might be just as good or better?

Beginnings and endings matter. All stories have them. And the story of Mosaic this year will begin and end like the Christian life: Entering into the Father’s presence, through the work of the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Remember what we say together to close every service?

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Eph. 3:20-21)
