How to start a CityLight Prayer Group
The third step in starting a CityLight Prayer Group is discipleship. We want to grow in the knowledge of and our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are far more than seekers, faint hearted onlookers or merely church members. We are committed believers who have committed ourselves completely to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Your CityLight Prayer Group is an active, intense, ongoing Bible study that seeks to saturate each member with the essence and spirit of the Word of God. Pursuing the Word not from our intellect but from prayerful intimacy with Jesus.
The Great Commandments and The Great Commission
We want to teach a Cross Style life style. This is where the cross is reflected in every relationship and interaction. We want to dwell in the vertical relationship with God and walk in horizontal relationship with man. This is reflected in our living the two Great Commandments (Matthew 28:36) and pursuing the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). As a member of your Prayer Group and a disciple of Christ you will spend time in Prayer allowing God to bring deeper meaning to these scriptures in your life.
Save a Generation: II Chronicles 7:14
Only God can save man. There are many solutions being offered to save the world - politics, social welfare, religion, etc. We ask that you allow the call of II Chronicles 7:14 to resonant first in your spirit and the in your world. Examine your life, the lives of those in your community and the spirit and values by which you live. In Prayer, you discover the will of God for you and this generation.
Acts: When The Spirit dwells in a man
The book of Acts tells the story of what can happen when we become filled with the Spirit of God. What happens when we become the throne on which sits Christ the Living God? Each Prayer group is ask to respond to God's call for Communion. Discipleship starts here.
Ephesians: Prayer Group as the Body of Christ
We encourage every Prayer Group to view the 5 twenty minute video lessons on the Book of Ephesians by Dr. Stephen Manley. These Lessons are to teach each believers about the heavenly world and the impact of our prayers.Video presentations by Dr. Manley and others will be made available to Prayer Group members.
Galatians: The Fruit of the Spirit
We the members of the CityLight Prayer group hereby solomly pledge our lives hopes and dreams to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We promise to uphold, honor and promote the core values of our Christian heritage. "The fruits of the Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them: ‘charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity.’
These fruits are the result of growth in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These fruits are tendencies rather than mere willingness, because "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." In the person who possesses a Fruit of the Spirit, this willingness bears fruit in the life and behavior of the person.

The Two Great Commandments
36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
The Great Commission
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."(NIV)
