What If...

Time to Move from Dialogue to Praying Together
The primary purpose of this website, is to serve as a conversational piece and introduction to something that's been on the hearts of many Christians: A need for those of us who know Christ to come together and seek the Lord because He both desires our company and also for the spiritual needs of our families and neighbors, chief of which is Salvation. Though some pertinent information will be dispensed on this site, it will not serve as a daily or weekly update on happenings concerning the PCPC. The main reason for this is that the Holy Spirit is birthing real friendships, which cannot be tracked or reported as if they were events within a political or civic organization.

 grew up here in the Park Circle area, like my mother and her parents.

Nearly everyday, I imagine what it would be like if those of us touched by His love were to pull together on the many things we agree on and begin to worship the Lord and pray for those who've yet to know Him. There is nothing so satisfying, moving, filling and lasting as the manifest presence of the Lord. Nothing can add to or improve upon the Holy Spirit. There are scores of Christians in the Park Circle area who desire to see God move among us. If you weep when when you hear a great worship song or have been in a great worship setting while desiring others to know this wonderful Lord, then it would be encouraging to hear from you!

I have felt for a while that I'm to get to know my fellow brothers and sisters along the Park Circle - Remount Road - Rivers Avenue Area. There are too many people around us who have never encountered the Lord or His love. There are too many of us here not to begin to worship and work together.

There is truly nothing more attractive and wonderful as the Person of Christ. You and I know this and feel it more everyday.

There are 25,000 Christian denominations and affiliations around the planet. Is the Body of Christ an organization or a spiritual organism of people whose hearts bare His Personal signature and whose names themselves are on a roll in Heaven? It has not been our differences that have kept us apart, but our pride in those differences. The Humble Christ deserves more from us.

My heart is full and hopes high.
We shall see.

Can you help? Would you join in encouraging Christian leaders and laypeople in the Park Circle area to begin to come together for the purpose of seeking the Lord?

There is no need for money and it will never be asked for, nor is this the forming of another (legal) organization (The PCPC logo was designed for a project which is "in season").

This is an effort to know my neighbors better and also an encouragement to pull us together in worship as we reach our neighbors with His love.

You can reach us via e-mail at info@parkcircleprayer.com.

It would be wonderful to hear from you!

In Him,

Riverfront Park

This is a great place to get away for families and a super place for church gatherings. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to predict that we'll probably see some significant mulit-church worship celebrations at this park's outdoor amphitheatre.

All around the Park Circle area, more so than any other part of the Lowcountry, there are trains. There's even a model train club on Jenkins Avenue, just off East Montague directly across from Heinson Field.

Recommended Reading: "That None Should Perish" by Ed Silvolso is a documentary on the impact of corporate prayer among many congregations within a modern day city. See what real revival looks like. Charles Colson's "Being the Body" is a powerful book on prayer within the Church around the world while Jim Cymbala's "Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" focuses on  prayer within the congregation. Rice and Perkins share a powerful work on relationships within the Christian community touching upon issues of race: "More Than Equals". And finally, Dutch Sheet's "Intercessory Prayer" is a powerful hand book on the individual prayer life. These books are well-written and very useful.

Parkcircleprayer.com is a parachurch and laypeople's effort, not a congregation, with the sole purpose of glorifying the Lord by supporting the divine institutions of the family and local congregation through the facilitation of community-wide prayer events which are led by Christian leaders who are concerned for the souls in the Park Circle - Remount Road and Rivers Avenue Area and who desire to please the Lord by seeking Him together.

...know them that labour among you... 1 Thessalonians 5:12 * ...pray for one another... James 5:6 * ...the eye cannot say to the hand I have no need of thee... 1 Corinthians 12:21 * ...there is one Body and one Spirit... Ephesians 4:4 * ...the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth...

The pride of public ministry has been a foundation for too many. At some point it consumes" *** "There is a difference between worshipping the idea that we worship God and actually worshipping God." *** "Why do we want to see prayer back in the schools, when it is no longer in our homes or churches?" *** "Corporate prayer around the Throne must return the center of church life if there is to be any hope for the masses." *** "Corporate prayer produces effective preaching, not preaching produces corporate prayer." *** "If we are so in the know, why do we no longer gather together to seek God, navigate through our haughty hearts to get a glimpse of God's heart and then pray in the lost?" *** "Christianity is not an enterprise, venture for self-discovery or political or civic organization. It is a Blood-bought fellowship of prayer focused on One." *** "Prayer-based friendships are the only ones that last." *** "Prayer-bathed friendships are not incidental to ministry, they are foundational." *** "Prayer is not a ministry of the Holy Spirit. It is the ministry" *** "It's one thing to tell somebody what we believe about Jesus, it's quite another to be able to introduce someone to our Best Friend." *** "We are more like Martha than Mary; More like Christian activists, than people of prayer." *** "We need unity in humility found at the foot of the Cross, not prideful uniformity that says: 'Look at us doing God's work'" "There has got to be a practical, excecutable strategy in place for us to dethrone the ministry of Hollywood in our homes and bring families and communities together via corporate prayer inspired by the Spirit. Technology is not the enemy; Our disobedient laziness is the enemy." ***
