“Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is.”

This quote from Charles Spurgeon points to a simple truth in James 4:2: “You do not have because you do not ask.” I believe we are in the midst of seeing God do mighty things at KingsWay, but we dare not assume that His work will continue without our asking Him. God reveals His specific will to His people, they pray for it to be done, then He does it, often using the very people who prayed to accomplish it. That is the heart and purpose behind the Day of Prayer on Saturday, January 26.

I encourage every member to sign up for at least one 1-hour time slot to join together in prayer in the Seminar Room. The time slots are from 7 AM to 7 PM, and sign up is in the foyer on Sunday or online. Then, at 7 PM we will all gather to worship and hear testimonies of what God has done throughout the day.

I am excited to join our church family as we pray to our Heavenly Father on Saturday, and I’m even more excited as I anticipate God answering our prayers throughout the coming year.

Matthew Williams grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys, Ethan, Micah, and Tyler. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and is nearly finished with his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
