At UniteBoston, we look forward to seeing churches throughout greater Boston praying for one another and collaborating in meaningful ways. This week I’d like to share one of the many ways one church is putting that into action.
Thank you to Curtis Cook, Pastor at Hope Fellowship Church in Cambridge for allowing us to share this note that he sent out to his congregation:
I think that probably many of us pray and yet rarely take the time to slow down, look back and give thanks for the way that God often answers our prayers. Today, I’d like to point out and praise God for a prayer that is being answered. One of the things we pray for each week in our worship gatherings is for a specific church or church plant in our community. As we pray for this we often are also praying that God would plant more churches in greater Boston, that existing churches would be invigorated and have a desire to play a part in church planting and that church plants would reproduce as well.
As I look around our city, it’s obvious that those prayers are being answered. New churches are being planted all over the city in neighborhoods and communities like: Medford, Melrose, Brookline, South End, Roslindale, West Roxbury, Watertown and the list goes on. Churches are also being planted among a number of people groups: Nepalese, Chinese, Korean, Haitian, and beyond. Friends, God is at work in our city! New churches that are proclaiming the gospel are being established. God is answering these prayers.
Of course, even with these new churches our city needs many more churches. So, let us give thanks to God for what He is doing and let us pray that He will do even more. Will you pray with us that more churches will be planted in our city to the glory of God?
