Easy and Effective
Those words are not often used together to describe a course of action, but they are true of Altadena’s Boiler Room prayer ministry. For millennia, saints have proclaimed that prayer is the single-most effective ministry in which anyone can engage. God loves to move mountains when his people take up Jesus’ promise, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” (John 15.7-8)
Okay, so prayer is effective, but how is Boiler Room prayer easy? Simple.You don’t have to try to squeeze one more hour from your already overbooked schedule. Boiler Room meets during our worship services. If you sign up for the Boiler Room, every month or so you step across the hall from the sanctuary and join others who are there to ask God to work powerfully in the hearts and minds of all who attend the worship that morning. You follow the movement of the service, even sing the songs, if you’re so inclined. You pray for the ministries and needs of our church, community, and world. Often those who participate say they come away refreshed. Yep, easy and effect do belong together.
