1. To worship Him
John 4:23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. (Amp)
2. To encourage one another
Hebrews 10:23 So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word. 24 And let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities, 25 Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching. (Amp)
3. To agree together in prayer
Matt 18:19 “ Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
4. To impact our communities
The Provision Room- by Bishop Bart Pierce from Rock City Church
Philippians 4:6 says, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;" We can become anxious to the point that we can't hear God correctly. The biggest mistakes you will make in your life is when you get impulsive. One of the most dangerous things that happens with Christians is when they manipulate God. When people get others to pray about a circumstances, but they have a wicked scheme already in motion, and they get you to carry the burden of prayer, those people are on dangerous ground.
One of God's name is El Shaddai, the God of more than enough. He is more than enough! Our asking is not just for us, it is for others. When you go into this provision room, you're not asking for yourself, you're asking for others.
Malachi 3:10 says, "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this," says the Lord of hosts, 'If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.'" That has to do with you passing on your blessing to your children's children's, children. God wants to bless you so much that you have to pass it on to another generation. Think about it!!!
Matthew 6:34 says, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
When whole time, you have already done what you want to do, that is a dangerous place. We have seen that happen. People think they can get something over on somebody by asking them to pray for them. You are wasting people's time. They could be praying about nations and legitimate issues that are in front of us.
