Welcome to Hope Talk
Paul in writing his letter to Timothy makes an unusual statement that confronts all of us, especially the men at Hope Chapel. I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. (1Tim.2:8) This epistle is a statement to Pastor Timothy, teaching him how the Church ought to conduct itself and direct its attention. The subject is prayer and specifically he mentions the responsibility of the men to be in prayer. He wants them to pray everywhere, not just on Sunday but everywhere and every time. This is our mandate from Paul. Men are to pray together. A healthy church, a healthy family, a healthy marriage are all based on the prayer life of the leaders and men. It is hard to get men together as they are also responsible to provide for their families, lead their families, help the needy, edify and serve others around them… but nothing more important for men than to pray. Prayer of itself is difficult. I’ll say it this way, if you love God, you will pray regularly. Wow. Straight up. Yep. Don’t try to say that you love God but you do not pray. You talk to the one you love. So let me make a suggestion, men. Find a time when you can pray with another man and hold each other accountable in this responsibility before God. Also, if any man is free on Friday mornings… we have a men’s prayer group praying at 5:30am at Hope. It truly is a blessing. Consider it.
