This month we are doing a study on prayer. We are told that God hears our prayers and answers them. But does it actually work? If there is a God does he actually here our prayers and give us answers to those prayers? How many prayers get answered and what kind of prayers get answered? These are just many questions that surround the topic of prayer. We'd like to put prayer to the test! This is not a text book exercise; this is real life: we'd like to see the effects of prayer on real people in real life from all walks of life.
For each prayer request, we are asking people to pray at least seven different times for their requests. The Bible tells us that it is good to be persistent in our prayers; God wants to know that we are serious about the things we are praying for. If that seems like a lot to you, don't worry! There are varying degrees of participation in which you can engage with this study. You can simply submit a prayer request, knowing that the team at Aspire Lab will be praying at least seven times for that request on your behalf. You can also agree to be followed up with, so that we can find out from you what sort of answer (if any) you received to your prayer. Or you can go one step further and request a prayer partner, someone who can pray with you to help hit those seven different prayer times.
Use the button below to submit your prayer request online. You can also use the same link to post answers to your prayers. We are looking forward to what happens when people everywhere begin to pray!
Aspire began as a vision,
a vision so big and so powerful that it could radically change the lives of every person on earth. It is a vision of Jesus; a Jesus who lives and breathes, a Jesus who heals, proves, loves, shines, teaches, and conquers; a Jesus who is calling you and wants to revolutionize your life. That guy is the Jesus we aspire to know more and more. And that is the Jesus that we continually aspire to display and magnify in our lives. This is the Jesus who's been waiting for you your whole life, to offer you everything that he is. Finding Him may actually be the very thing you've been looking for.
This year, we are trying something completely new. For some reason it seems like God has been bringing Cleveland Heights to the brink of spiritual revival. And we'd like to get on board with His moving. We want to be His tools in helping to bring the news of his salvation to people. But we also want to explore the depths and the wonders of God’s grace and the power of His gospel as it works in and around the people of Cleveland Heights. It was out of all this that Aspire Lab was born!
Here's what we're doing: every month, has a different theme and a unique approach to outreach, to sharing eternal life with the world. So instead of meeting regularly, we'll be out on campus, or in the neighborhood, or on the streets! In September, we will be talking to people about the idea of church, and what people think a church should be. October, we will be probing deeper. At the end of the month, we will be holding an "open forum," inviting people to bring their questions about God, the afterlife, Christianity, and spirituality with no judgment, and no strings attached. November is all about prayer. Besides doing a lot of praying (naturally!), we're going to construct a "prayer booth" and invite anyone to come and receive prayer! December, January, and the beginning of February, we will be launching a "LIFE" campaign, inviting people to explore and question what "life" really is. It will culminate in an awesome concert put on by The ViOS Project, an Christian electro-acoustic band focused on spreading eternal life in Christ through the power of the Word and music.
Our schedule varies from week-to-week so if you'd like to be involved contact Julian Taylor to learn more and to get involved. We'd love for you to join us!!
